MinitrainS HOn30 Models

 MinitrainS

MinitrainS has come back in a Big Way with new HOn30 models.
The new models are very well done and run much better than the old Minitrains models. The product line is much broader than the old Minitrains line and new models are released every year.
Please note that these models are made in small production runs, so models may go out of stock for a while.
We are slowly increasing our store stock of MinitrainS items. We can order any available models for you.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or you wish to order an item or three.
Please see the bottom of the page for notes on Pricing and shipping.

For more HOn30 see the HOn30 Web Page

Track Minitrains HOe - 009 -HOn30
9300xx MinitrainS Track system Only available Direct from MinitrainS $0.00
As a real Narrow Gauge Track System with a small radius was not available MinitrainS decided to create one. Their new track system comes with a 140 mm ( app. 5,5 inch) radius curves and thus allows building layouts even on a bookshelf. The track profile is CODE 83 (2.1 mm). Please be aware that the small radius allows only to run shorter locomotives on it. The MinitrainS Heeresfeldbahn 0- 8-0 locos run on it, but the attached coaches will be pulled off the track. For the larger locos the best is to use the PECO track. If there is enough demand MinitrainS will develop a larger radius solution.
There is a downloadable planning sheet on the MinitrainS web site.
This is a limited production Item Only Available Direct from MinitrainS.

We reserve the right to correct errors and change prices without prior notice.
Please note that all prices are in Canadian Dollars. The Canadian price is set by the US-to-Canadian exchange rate on the day we import the products into Canada. As the US-to-Canadian $ exchange rate fluctuates constantly, the current US price will depend on the day the item is purchased.
US orders are shipped Fridays by US Post. Shipping charges will be what ever US Post wants to mail the package to you from Washington State. Canadian orders will be shipped by Canada Post unless you wish to pay for a different method.

Please note that page updates are done when time permits.
Images by me unless otherwise noted. As MinitrainS does not like other people using their images, we are in the process of making our own.
As we can only photograph models we have seen, many items do not have an image yet. This is a work in progress.
