Most model train manufacturers generate the majority of their sales from the over 50s. The industry consensus is that children will have to be increasingly targeted in addition to the over 50s if stable or increasing sales are to be generated in the long term. Many manufacturers have therefore introduced inexpensive entry-level models in order to get children and young people interested in model train sets.
