Something to think about...
Most of the great layout builders started small.
I have always had the conflict,
of whether to build a toy train set, or a layout.
Now that I am fully making a home made layout,
I can't imagine even buying pre-made telegraph poles,
much less anything else.
It's gonna take time,
before even this tiny layout gets sorta finished.
Got a huge list of To Do's already,
more rolling stock - a steam loco - a grain elevator -
a gold mine - a engine house - a train station - etc.

Make as much as you can yourself.
Then you will have stuff that nobody else has and the fun of making it all with your own hands.
Of course there are some things that might need to be bought, but that's the hobby.

Over the years my only "layout" was an oval,
and I admit to spending hours running,
I mean operating my trains on that oval.
A lot of fun.
