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.

italeri br41 locomotive trains model kits

Diesel Locomotives BR41
From 1936, within the building program for the German National Raiways (DRG), the BR 41 class of “standard” locomotives was developed for fast transportation. During the trial period the BR 41 received the nickname “Ox Loco” because it was used for hauling cattle cars. Subsequntly, a total of 366 of the BR 41 locomotives were built, split among almost all the German locomotive builders. The BR 41 was designed as a so-called multi-purpose locomotive. In addition to its proper application – hauling express goods trains – its maximum speed of 90km/h enabled it to be used for fast express passenger trains.
