Welcome to Back Yard Train Company. We are located in Denver CO where we hand build rideable all-steel scale models of real diesel locomotives. We now have four 1" scale, 4.75" gauge trains in production. 5" GA is also available
The GP diesel below is our newest engine prototype offering and is shown below not fully detailed. At over 56" long 15.5" high and 10.5" wide it is our newest offering in the heavy puller category. Having four traction motors and cast sprung trucks similar to the real prototype.
Our 1929 GE BOXCAB shown above is perfect for smaller yards that need a smaller turning radius. Don't be fooled by the small size! This engine weighs around 55 lbs. and can pull two adults with no problem. The chassis plate is 3/8" thick steel. It's a perfect engine to enter the live steam hobby or as an easy to run small yard engine for your club with nice detail.
Also available is our 4.75" GAUGE SW-1 SWITCHER LOCOMOTIVE with incredible pulling power and two motors on each equalized and sprung truck! Being constructed of castings and 12 & 16ga steel it doesn't get much more realistic!
We offer fully READY TO RUN engines with a hand controller and charger done in the paint and road name of your choice. Some are offered as semi-built kits with or without machining.
In addition we offer powered axle assemblies for scratch building that have cnc'd wheels and axles with a bulletproof chain drive, all engineered in house. These units are designed to take the headache out of getting power to the track with hand-crafted, nicely cnc'd 40" scale wheels.
AAR and Bloomberg type scale trucks are also available.
