Athearn trains are a popular investment for savvy model train hobbyists and with good reason. Athearn offers top-of-the-line quality in HO scale trains, the most common scale in model railroading. Some Athearn trains are even considered museum quality due to the historically accurate detail they make sure to incorporate during the manufacturing process.

The Benefits of Buying Athearn Trains

Athearn trains are without a doubt the top name in HO scale trains. Buying Athearn means you'll never have a hard time replacing a part since they have certified retailers everywhere. Lesser known companies don't have the resources a big company like Athearn does so getting replacement parts or other services isn't always easy.

Another one of Athearn's best attributes is their frequent release of special editions. Every year there are several special edition locomotives and rolling stock selections released. This is key if you're the kind of model train hobbyist who enjoys collecting hard to find or limited edition items.

In addition to special edition train sets, Athearn also does custom work. Perhaps you need a caboose to fill out that vintage train you spent years collecting and piecing together. If you can pinpoint the design specifics, Athearn can make the piece you need!
