WHAT MAKES TRAINMASTERS DIFFERENT?
You have multiple choices of video resources you can tap for model railroading, so how is TrainMasters TV different?
We don't give you a fish, we teach you to fish
We take you to new levels of understanding and innovation in the hobby, not just give you well-worn answers on the same old beginner topics. Instead of showing you a few simple methods to mimic, we teach you how to think and model like an expert. You get to apprentice with a broad array of hobby experts we bring on camera, furthering your own hobby journey toward becoming a better modeler.
We're about the hobby at-large, not just an MRH marketing tool
We do not subject you to a constant barrage of MRH marketing messages in our videos - in fact you will find the MRH staff aren't even on camera that much. TrainMasters is not the "MRH show" but rather a refreshing fountain of knowledge and expertise from the movers and shakers in the hobby. Since TrainMasters is not ad-funded, it has no in-your-face ads or blatant hobby vendor infomercials. TrainMasters is about giving you real answers, not marketing hype.
It's the HOBBYIST that makes the hobby fun, not just the models
Models don't have fun, it's the modelers who have the fun! Model Railroad Hobbyist has always been about the hobbyists and how they do the hobby well - and TrainMasters is no different. One of model railroading's unique appeals is that train models do interesting things and they MOVE. As a video medium, we show you the models in action, and we help you get inside the hobbyist to see what makes them tick. TrainMasters TV aims to make the hobby more entertaining, more fun, and ultimately, more satisfying.
We do professional, network-quality video production
TrainMasters TV goes all-out to produce the best quality high definition video and audio possible. Our Executive Producer, Barry Silverthorn, has a background in network and public television production and he works to make our videos look and sound like what you'd expect from the pros. We have professional studio sets as well as go on-location, and we take advantage of multiple cameras and the best camera angles to make sure you don't miss any of the action. You will clearly see the difference - TrainMasters is not just YouTube on steroids.
