Model railroading is a great hobby for the entire family! Perfect for beginners, Trainline train sets offer a complete package with everything you need to set up a running train layout - powered locomotive, different styles of rolling stock including a caboose, power pack, track and complete instructions.
If you're new to model trains, the best place to start is with a complete set. Here are some basics that you need to know.
Some folks call them cars, others refer to these by car type. Rolling Stock is any type of railroad car that runs on a train. Whether it's used for carrying freight like a tank car, or moving passengers from one destination to the next in a coach, it all falls under the broad category of Rolling Stock.
We offer a great variety of Trainline Rolling Stock. These cars have all been upgraded with RP-25 metal wheels which means Trainline cars operate reliably and run smoothly for hours and hours of operating fun!
