Gifts for Model Train EnthusiastsGifts for Model Train Enthusiasts
Model train enthusiasts spend countless hours on their
hobby, and if you're buying presents for men who love
model trains, there are a wide variety of gifts you can
buy. Maybe you're shopping for someone who is just
starting out with model trains as a new hobby, and just
has a simple oval of track on a table top or old sheet of
plywood. Perhaps you need a gift for a guy who has
been building his model railway for a few years, and has
an extravagant layout with landscaping, buildings,
people and vehicles.
No matter how long he's been a fan of model trains, or
how simple or fancy his model railway is, I'm sure you
can find a gift that will make him happy.
If you aren't sure what model train accessory to buy, you
could choose something with a train theme, like a
humorous mug. Your guy can use it to drink his morning
coffee, while he starts up his model railway at the crack
of dawn. For example, I saw one mug with the slogan,
"He who dies with the most model trains wins."
Realistic Train Sounds
What would be more fun than having authentic train noises
in the background while he's down in the basement with
his model railway? For example, you can buy a train
sounds CD that features original recordings of classic
steam and diesel locomotives from the 40's and 50's.
Sound effects like that would provide hours of
entertainment for your model railroad enthusiast.
If you know of a special railroad car that your guy has his
eye on, you could buy it for him, either from an online
store, like Amazon, or a local shop. Before you buy
anything, make sure you know what scale his railroad is,
and if he has a preferred manufacturer. You don't want to
buy something that won't fit the tracks, or a duplicate of
something that he already owns.
Model Train Diploma
Does your guy have a wonderful sense of humor? If he
does, a diploma from Model Trains University could be
the perfect gift, personalized with your guy's name, and
featuring a fancy gold seal. It would look lovely hanging
on the wall, over his model railway. If you have good
computer skills, and the right software, you could create
your own version of a diploma, and put it in a nice frame
for him. Microsoft Word has some nice page borders that
would look very authentic on a homemade certificate.
Model train planning guides make excellent presents for
men who love to read, and are planning to start or
expand a model railway. For example, a book on model
railroad scenery would keep him busy for hours, creating
a realistic landscape for his railway layout.
For beginners, a beginners guide would be much
appreciated. If your guy is a more advanced train
enthusiast, maybe he'd prefer a book of track plans, so
he can revise or expand his railway.
