The mission of the HO-Scale Trains Resource is to provide information relating to the history of ready-to-run model trains. Specific product lines are presented with their own individual websites that provide the viewer with a look at what each company offered the model railroading hobby. Launched in 2000 with the “TYCO Trains Resource,” The HO-Scale Trains Resource has for over a decade been dedicated to being the foremost online resource of information regarding ready-to-run 1/87th model trains in the world.
The examples found on this page are Roco-produced examples from Austria. The prototype for the model is Pullman-Standards PS-1. The quality of the work and its accuracy are quite good, considering the first release of this model dates to 1961.
