The Innovative and Creative Way to Model Trains

Miniature Railways began importing model trains from Germany in 1996, specialising in European models. Our range is extensive, from the major model train manufacturers to specific products from smaller manufacturers like Bicyc-LED. Our orders from Germany to South Africa are fast and efficient. We assist our customers with layout designs and then guide them through the steps of building the frame work, laying of the tracks, electrical connecting, electronic operating equipment and scenery building right through to the finished model train creation.
