Check out this infographic we created about model trains.


Trains are the oldest form of mechanical transport and often carry a sense of nostalgia for those riding in them or watching them. First created as a way to promote locomotive transportation to those who had not seen trains before, today model trains are maintained by legions of passionate enthusiasts around the world, including celebrities like Tom Hanks, Rod Stewart and Michael Jordan.
