|Titus, I think everyone has that issue. I think the only way to get past it is to build something, anything. It's very easy to develop a bad case of plan-itis.
It's also easy to look at magazines and go gee I wish I had a layout like that.
I have it worse because I honestly like all trains: standard gauge and narrow gauge; european and US; name the scale I've run some trains in it.
From what I see most guys on here mix up their themes a bit. So although they may have a perfect model of a steam engine exactly the way the prototype was, they may also be running a train from some place thousands of miles away right next to it.
A while back I got pinned on the idea of modeling the Gilpin Tramway. Well that was ok until I realized I wanted more than two dozen ore cars and a coach for rolling stock. (yeah they had more stuff I know but it was very limited.)
Right now i'm in my european HO phase. It's just part of my cycle of train obsessiveness. (The last one was 1970's standard gauge in N scale; before that I was checking out narrow gauge stuff. ARGH!!!) But I run what I have which is a weird mix of stuff and I'm having a blast.
So what scale are you modeling in? Do you have any rolling stock and locos or are you still planning?
Did I ever mention that I like trains?
