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.
