Backyard Train Co. builds all steel rideable train models in 1"( 1:12) and 1.5/1.6" (1:8) scale. Our train models operate on track gauges of 4.75" or 7.25/7.5" making miniature railroading possible almost anywhere. Based in Denver Colorado where train history and roots run deep our models are hand built to last a lifetime. Focusing on quality and detail, all of our trains are built from real steel and aluminum adding that extra level of realism in our models.
