I often hear that this hobby has no future because the kids have no interest. I can only think it is because those that have tons of money invested don't let the kids play with them. I just buy the sets put them together then walk away. So what if they break a small part they are having fun. However I was politely told this year that I have been doing things wrong. And this was by my 12 year old daughter. She was quick to notice that I had put the consists for the Polar Express and Hogwarts Express together all wrong. I didn't know there was a order but she sure did. Now if she didn't have ANY interest in trains how would she of known that?
