Welcome to Backyard Train Company. We are located in Denver Colorado where
we build 1" scale 4.75" track gauge rideable all-steel diesel locomotives and riding stock
for the live steam hobby and model railroad enthusiast. 

Ever dreamed about owning your own backyard railroad or running at your local club? We
can make that happen.

We'd like to say we build models and not just trains. Our models are all CAD designed after
real prototypes and incorporate many scale details like die-cast latches, fully sprung trucks
and traction motors like our AAR type trucks below. We are utilizing the newest laser
sintering technology to create many scale details on our models like exhaust stacks, hinges
and even grab rails. A good example is the scale steam generator available below and almost all
the details on the SW1200 so check it out. 

Drive Systems: Our 24v drive system is designed in house and utilizes modern hi-freq regenerative
braking speed control for long life, almost silent operation and is used exclusively on all our trains.
It is MU-capable as well. 

We have a few new diesels available so please inquire. Our SW-1200 switcher and GP series diesel
shown below are now available. Please contact us below for pricing or with any questions. We are looking
forward to providing your next locomotive. 

*We also have parts, traction motors and truck kits available please ask. Thanks!
