I've been on the hobby for my whole life,and recently ive noticed people telling me I should be ashamed of being into trains. Should I be or just keep liking them?

There are a lot of people, including some on this forum, who are into trains and other forms of transportation. It's a pretty interesting subject if you really get into it. It's nothing to be ashamed of at all.

Riding in them, admiring beautiful stations, marveling at the feats of engineering used in tunnels & bridges - trains brought all of it about!

Why would someone tell you that? Because it is total b.s. just because you like something (unless of course it's illicit like drugs or alcohol) doesn't mean it's a bad thing.

So? I don't think I've ever met anyone so self righteous as to tell me that I'm weird and should be ashamed for being into John Deere tractors, or electric trains. Imo, if someone tells you that, you should tell it back to them, about how self righteous they are and so forth.

Ps. In case out were wondering, I don't really have quite favorite road name, as long as I like the particular piece of equipment I don't care about the name. Right now I have mostly santa few but I want to get a BNSF SD40-2 in HO scale.

I've volunteered at a railway museum for nearly 5 years now, we're a dying breed, and that's what makes us who we are. Try getting in loops of railfans and keep in touch with them.

No..I don't think you should be ashamed of liking trains. Everyone has his own likes and dislikes. Myself I like aviation and I'm not ashamed to sat it.

I love trains and i'm really interested in them! I dont know any other girls that are as interested as i am in trains so i'm sometimes shy to admit it, but theres nothing wrong with liking them! Instead of playing with barbies and dolls and stuff as a little girl i would create elaborate tracks with my brios, my dad also has an elaborate setup of lionel trains that we would (and still do) work on & play with together. He will also take me to train museums sometimes! Its a great and very special bonding experience for us!

Of course not! You do what you want and ignore what they say. If it keeps you happy and entertained, just do it. It's not hurting anyone. :metal:

Your a railroader of course your into trains. Who cares what someone else is into.

Yeah don't let people tell you what to like. I like looking at model trains. I like reading and one of my friends said that was "nerdy". Different interests make us the interesting people that we are.

Nothing to be ashamed of. Lots of people think trains are glamorous or romantic. One of my favorite books was Nothing Like it in the World by Ambrose, about the transcontinental railway.
