Locomotives

Mini Train Systems builds a wide range of 5" and 7.25" gauge electric locomotives, designed for the backyard, club, and commercial operations. We also import the full range of Maxitrak locomotives.

All electric locomotives are battery operated and fitted with high quality "chopper" control systems. Options include sound simulators, upgraded control panels and, for some models, superdetailing kits.

Please note that while most locos are built to order, we aim to keep the "Planet" and "Drewry" in stock and at the other large locos "on the boil" with shortened lead times.
