Inside the cover of the new MTH Ready-to-Run catalog are these words:
"In a world where much childhood play takes place on a two-dimensional screen, model railroading offers a form of play that is both old-fashioned and timeless. For more than a hundred years, children have been using toy trains - along with construction sets, toy figures, empty boxes and anything else at hand - to build their own imaginary worlds. There's still enormous value in building something with your hands, making it operate, and sharing it with your family and friends."
Add to that a call to action like "Get into Model Railroading!" - Maybe even "Ask me how I can help!"
Please copy and paste this paragraph into all of the blogs, social media, newsletters, wherever it is that you publish - and spread the word.....
While I am talking about this - the next paragraph they wrote is a good one, too -
"Model trains come in different sizes. O Gauge trains are nearly twice as large as HO Gauge. Compared with HO and smaller N Gauge trains, O Gauge models are easier to handle, more rugged, stay on the track better, sound better due to the larger speaker size, and blend better with other childhood construction toys. That's why, for more than half a century, O gauge trains have been the preferred way to begin a model railroading adventure."
Thank you, MTH....
