Bench Time - Model Railroading Podcast
Summary: Welcome to the Bench Time model railroading podcast! If you came to this podcast looking to hear about the latest in trains, you probably came to the wrong place... We focus on fine modeling and pay close attention to the small details. This is a weekly podcast created with the intention to help you, the model railroader or fine scale modeler, or modeler of whatever floats your boat. We want to be able to get the best products, techniques, and ideas out in front of you, and talk about how we learned the right and wrong ways to model. We'll share our mistakes too so you can avoid them! We aren't trying to sugarcoat anything either, so kick back, grab a beer, and go work on your layout as you listen to our model railroading podcast... because we're probably doing the same thing right now too.
