2011: The Year of the Kit!

Now here’s a great idea from our friends at O Scale Trains magazine…

2011 is the Year of the Kit!

Grab a copy of the March issue, build a kit and enter the contest.

This is a hands-on hobby and if you’ve been sitting on your hands lately instead of building stuff with them, maybe this is the incentive you need.

As a friend of mine likes to say, “We can do better”.

We’ll be talking about ways to promote the hobby to potential enthusiasts in future episodes of The Model Railway Show. One of the keys to winning new recruits – especially those with the financial resources to commit to the hobby in a significant way – is to demonstrate how one can enjoying meaningful engagement with model railroading. One important way to do that is to promote the building of things, rather than the buying of things.
