    Does anyone have any websites that are good for getting information on model railroading. I found a couple but they are really not broad in scope nor specific enough for me. I am looking for a site where I can get most questions answered with a click of the button(mouse). Thanks Mark:)

    Hello Mark,
    I suppose the NMRA org site and Model Railroader magazine site might be good to start with. ( and

    After that, you might want to try going to some of the online forums (such as this one, and,, and to name a few) and use the "search" feature to look up specific questions. Keywords like "design", "benchwork", "turnouts", "DCC", can provide you with a wealth of info, opinions, reviews, and advice.

    Of course, is also a great resource. I use it a lot when folks talk about an engine I'm not familiar with and I want to see a picture of it.

    Finally, visit some of the forums, and start reading through the topics. Whenever you find someone who has left a URL link to their own page, click off on a cyber side trip to it. Amazing whats in the ether.

    Good luck!!
