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 “Branch-Line” or BL-2 from AHM is among the company’s earliest offerings. As such, it does suffer from some degree of crudity. The unit rides on the truck used for the Fairbanks-Morse C-Liner, rather than the prototypical EMD Blomberg truck.
