Services

Model Train Repair offers expert repair and innovative design services for model train collectors and enthusiasts. Our services include:



  • Model Train Cleaning and Lubrication
    Basic maintenance is key to keeping your model trains running smoothly for years to come. Trains should be cleaned every few years if in daily use or every three to five years if operated seasonally.

  • Model Train Repairs
    If your train won't run, there is likely a mechanical or electrical problem in the motor that can be fixed. Whether your train has been dropped or has simply gone unused for many years, we have the expertise to quickly diagnose problems and to make the necessary repairs. Our expert diagnostic, repair and custom design capabilities are available at an affordable rate: $25 per hour, $15 shipping plus the cost of parts.
