Free at Constructing a model railroad layout is not a quick five minute task; it will most probably take you several years to finish. That won’t mean that you’re inefficient or slow, it’s just that taking care and attending to details takes time. It’s also probable you’ll want to change or add-to your layout over time, so your model railroad might never actually get completed.
The worst eventuality is to dive into a big project only to give up interest because of delays or unexpected complications during the building or wiring process. Your family or personal circumstances could alter, or you might even relocate house. Who knows?
It is generally better to begin small with a model railroad that won’t fill the all the space you have at your disposal. Construct it in one module (section) at a time, because this will give you the chance to improve your skill-set with, ballasting, wiring, laying track, scenery construction etc. A model railroad layout doesn’t need to be large to be fun! Having manageable individual modules (sections) is an important key to success.
