There is no such a thing as "the Average Model Railroader", but there is certainly "the Dedicated Model Railroader."

You see; most railroad modelers are very keen an enthusiastic when it comes to the hobby, and yes they have a lot in common, but there is also a lot of diversity between the hobbyists. Some model HO scale, others model N scale, O scale, OO gauge, or one of the other scales. Many in the hobby favor DCC whilst others prefer the more traditional DC operation. Bachmann trains are popular with many, but Marklin, or Hornby trains are the pick for others. A great many model railroaders choose scenery construction as their favorite aspect of the hobby, whereas others get a real kick out of doing the carpentry, wiring or electrical stuff. Then there are those who get most pleasure from operating their trains, or running waybill systems. Some folk model 1880's wild west scenes, others model railroads from the 1960's, the civil war, WW2, the present day, or a mix of several eras or themes.

The point I'm really making is that "the Average Model Railroader" doesn't actually exist. Although we might have a lot in common, we are all very different. And that's a good thing. If you get pleasure from just operating your trains, and don't bother much with realism, then that's entirely your choice.

If others in this hobby frown on you for not being a "purist", then that's their problem not yours. If you want to race your trains at unrealistic high speeds and have them crash every few minutes, then that's your choice. It's not the way I would operate my railroad, but it's your railroad, not mine. So make it unique and build and operate it the way you choose.

The most important thing is to enjoy the hobby like so many other "Dedicated Model Railroaders." Who knows, you might end up looking something like the guy in this poster!
