Ride Trains

Providing an inexpensive way for kids and adults to enjoy the great hobby of live steam outdoor (and sometimes indoor) railroads.  Check out our products and start enjoying 7.5" or 7.25" gauge model railroading.  Take a look at the power chassis page for our selection of power chassis, including the extremely popular MMC chassis.  Be certain to click through to see what some of our customers have built on a solid and reliable foundation.  Or if you want something ready to ride out of the box, take a look at the Mini Motor Car.  The goal was to make a small, inexpensive, and reliable electric speeder.  The Mini Motor Car has proved strong and reliable, racking up many miles.  With the LRV controls it is extremly easy to use and I've had everyone from the cable contractor to trick-or-treaters take it for a spin.
