Weathering for Railway Modellers: Volume 2 - Buildings, Scenery and the Lineside

 

 

 

If there's one thing that signifies the Industrial Age, it's trains. From the 1800's and up, the train had been the machine to move goods by ground, across vast distances. Passengers, goods, livestock, supplies, the trains and locomotives moved them all.

Surprisingly, there are quite a few model kits of trains. While most are historical, and some are military trains, you can still get a sense of the steam, smoke and grime that the trains and locomotives of the past provided to everyday life.

Revell, Italeri, Trumpeter, are just a few of the model kit companies making models of trains. New kits are still coming out, including military trins by Trumpeter, but also civilian trains by Aoshima. (Notably Japanese trains and trams).

Most of the train models, especially the older ones, are HO (1/87) scale. This means you can add tradional HO scale trains parts, scenes, buildings, and accessories like an electric train set might have.

Later military train kits are 1/35, so there are plenty of military 1/35 scale accessories and figures you can add to your model train display.

Regardless of your age, it seems train kits are here to stay, and will continue to be a small, but well followed part of the hobby.

Train model kits. Static train models you can build. Many of them are HO (1/87) scale. The same scale as an electric toy train.

Some of the miltary ones and a few others are 1:35 scale, which is a standard military model scale.
