Railway modeling or model railroading is a hobby in which rail transport systems are modeled at a reduced scale. Building a model railroad won't be a simple "loop of track around the Christmas Tree", but the beginnings of a real, scale, model railroad. One that can be a rail line along the east coast, across a section of the midwest or through the Rockies. A model railroad would be something to set up permanently in your basement, recreation room, or other available space. Start easy, with something as a simple as a inner - outer loop of track with a few switches. This may sound boring, but it won't be. After that, grow the railroad by adding scenery, more track, buildings, figures, trackside accessories and so on. Then pretend role-play, performing transporting of freight, switching and car splitting in miniature - just like the real thing - detailed all the way down to the diesel loco sounds coming from the engine.
