The World's Greatest Hobby, Inc. (WGH) is a non-profit educational program to promote the enjoyment and benefits of model railroading. As part of that initiative the group developed a  24-page booklet Getting Started in Model Trains, as well as a tri-fold pamphlet, to provide an introduction to the hobby. Both are available for free to train show or event organizers and clubs.
