There is no greater accomplishment, or satisfaction, than in building something yourself. Fortunately, in this era of supplied entertainment, where accomplishment is often measured by how many levels have been completed, vintage locomotive kits from Roundhouse, Mantua and Tyco still offer the challenge, and opportunity, to create your own unique model railroading masterpiece. You will find no greater selection of these great kits from a bygone era than here at MRRHQ's Vintage Model Steam Locomotive Works.
