Locomotives

Mini Train Systems offers the full range of Maxitrak 5" and 7.25" gauge electric and steam locomotives as well as custom built 7.25" gauge commercially rated electric 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.

All Steam Locos have had their boiler designs type approved by AMBSC before release by Mini Train Systems. Please note that owners of miniature steam locos need to be a member of an AMBSC affiliated club to maintain their boiler certification.

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.
