Trains-N-TownsTM, the Official Newsletter of and

Trains-N-TownsTM newsletter is for people who:
  • Run big model trains during the holiday season,
  • Use model trains with collectible villages,
  • Own collectible trains by Hawthorne Village(r)
  • Are starting a model railroad using On30, O gauge, or larger trains.

Sometime after we started the BIG Christmas TrainsTM buyer's guides, we realized that lots of readers who started out running big trains for Christmas were finding other reasons to leave their trains "set up." We also realized that there were few resource for people who got into the hobby this way. So we've started BIG Indoor TrainsTM web site and the Trains-N-TownsTM newsletter to help folks who suddenly find themselves running and liking O scale and larger trains. We hope you find this newsletter helpful, and if you don't, let us know what you'd like to see - that's how we learn and grow.
