iTrainCollect.com, an online community and blog about collecting trains, has updated its blog with new posts entitled “Tips for Creating a Model Train Layout,” “Collecting Toy Trains,” and “Walthers Train Manufacturers.”
The post “Tips for Creating a Model Train Layout” from iTrainCollect.com discusses important aspects people must focus on when creating a model train backdrop or layout. The author notes that a strong base, made with sturdy foam insulation, is the key to building a layout. Furthermore, model train layouts may also make use of screen wire, plaster, and wood for building bridges and other landscape according to the post. Finally, the blog advocates using computer graphics and printouts to make billboard ads and other design elements in a model train layout.
“Collecting Toy Trains” argues that both fathers and children can enjoy train collecting together. This post on iTrainCollect.com also provides a helpful resource for prospective collectors: the Train Collector’s Association (TCA). According to the blog, the total membership of the TCA is currently over a half million people. Finally, the post describes the different types of toy trains made throughout history, including early brass models as well as modern plastic trains.
“Walthers train manufacture began in 1932 and was founded by Bill Walthers,” begins the page “Walthers Train Manufacturers” from iTrainCollect.com. This post details the history of Walthers model trains, which is, according to the blog, currently based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As of 2005, the company, known as Wm. K. Walthers Inc., sells imported train models with to-scale options. Besides selling the trains themselves, the Walthers train manufacturers are known for selling a complete line of model train accessories, which are described by the author.
