TopHobbyTrains is a family business set up to enhance the modeling experience for both our customers and ourselves. We carry all of the major manufacturers and have a large inventory of the latest releases ready to ship. We are always adding to our manufacture offerings. Our discounts range from 20% to 40% on most items. We want to be your primary source for N scale trains and model railroad equipment. TopHobbyTrains is much more than a discount store we also provide N Scale advice to modelers from beginners to veterans. We are modelers ourselves having been in the hobby from the old Aurora Postage Stamp Trains days (over 37 years).  TopHobbyTrains also has a DCC installation service.  Our sound versions of the Kato N Scale GS4 and GG1 using SoundTraxx and LokSound decoders have been revered worldwide.  Whether you purchase the loco from us (at a great discounted price) or from others, we can custom install the DCC electronics for you.  We also can install simulated MARS lighting in your loco.  We can do this modification on the Kato, IntermountainBachmann and Atlas line of locos.

    TopHobbyTrains is an authorized Kato, Con-Cor, Micro-Trains, Digitrax, SoundTraxx, Intermountain, TCS and Walthers dealer. We carry the entire product line for these manufacturers.  We accept pre-orders for upcoming releases allowing our customer the ability to tailor their collection purchases on a standing order basis.  Additionally we offer a conversion service on all locomotive and rolling stock items purchased from TopHobbyTrains. TopHobbyTrains accepts pre-order reservations for all upcoming releases so that our customers don't miss out on their favorite equipment and road names.

    If you collect the Classic Metal Works Mini Metals line of N Scale vehicles take a look at our inventory.  We stock the latest releases and also have a good supply of prior years offerings.

    We have in stock the Kato SD70M, SD70MAC, PA/PB, AC4400CW.  The Kato 4-8-4 GS4 Southern Pacific Morning Daylight is a favorite for modelers of all scales.  Atlas Code 55 trackCode 80 Track, Diesels and more are standard stock items for TopHobbyTrains.  We have all of the Bachmann, ConCor and Life-Like recently released steam locomotives including the 2-10-24-8-4 Northern, and 4-8-2 Mountain.
