Little wonder, then, that most vintage model trains were based on real-life steam locomotives, even though very few of these toys actually ran on live steam. Early tinplate toy trains, for example, made largely in Germany by companies like Lehmann, Bing, Issmayer, Carette, Günthermann, and Märklin, ran on clockwork engines. Prominent European manufacturers of this period were Märklin, Bing, Hornby and Karl Bub; U.S. major manufacturers Lionel, Ives, American Flyer (later A.C. Gilbert) and Marx, while steam-driven model locomotives as promoted by the U.K. firm of Bassett-Lowke became a niche market for the early serious model railway enthusiast.

Model trains are the perfect addition to any scale model collection with their large engines, passenger carriages and . Railway modelling (UK, Australia and Ireland) or model railroading (US and Canada) is a hobby in which rail transport systems are modelled at a reduced scale.. The scale models include locomotives, rolling stock, streetcars, tracks, signalling and landscapes including: countryside, roads, bridges, buildings, vehicles, urban landscape, model figures, lights, and features such as rivers, hills.
