I'm not talking about hornby playtrains, i mean actual trains like triang used to make. Thomas is off the table, the new toys are unrecognizable to trains. how is any child supposed to become a railfan when the only things they could get that look like trains cost hundreds and brake in 2 days tops when they try to play? the cry over losing the set, the parents get onto them because of how expensive it is, and the child never thinks about trains again. i just wish someone could start a budget line of simple models that can take a beating. how else can a hobby stay alive?
