Their roots go back to 1940, when Micro-Trains® founders Keith Edwards and his twin brother Dale started making model train turnouts. By the early '60s, the brothers began to manufacture their Magne-Matic® coupler system in a new, smaller scale, called N scale (1:160).
In 1972, they took the next logical step and introduced a complete freight car to the N scale line. In the 90s, interest in N scale model railroading grew dramatically, as more and more people found entertainment and fun in the operation and collecting of this ideal scale. Today, Micro-Trains® is the only model train manufacturer of any scale that offers more than 80 different styles of prototypically correct model train freight cars.
Micro-Trains® distributes these freight cars in a variety of forms; including single car releases, multi-packs, and complete train sets. In addition, the company specializes in providing 'Special Run' releases, customized to the exact requirements requested by clubs, organizations, and businesses of all types. So, whether you're a model train operator, a collector, or someone who simply enjoys the highest quality models of any type, Micro-Trains® is the source, both today and tomorrow!

The phenomenal growth in the popularity and quality of N scale can be attributed to a great degree by Micro-Trains® efforts.
The company's uncompromising standards of excellence are reflected in the uniquely accurate features, and exacting fidelity in the micro-fine printing and lettering that each freight car offers.
Original scheme with maroon lettering, black lettering with herald, and black lettering with herald and white ends. By the late 1940s, they had designed and patented the Magne-Matic® Coupler, which revolutionized model railroading. Soon, Micro-Trains® was in full swing, specializing in N Scale model trains, Magne-Matic® couplers, and accessories. The fit, finish, and detail of each item produced is celebrated throughout the railroad modeling community. Prototype-specific details, six-pin plug for Digital Command Control decoder, and modeler-installed wire grab irons. Injection-molded plastic body with six-wheel Commonwealth trucks, plastic wheelsets, and Magne-Matic couplers.
It provided a revolutionary new realistic looking and operationally superior coupler system. Eventually added to the product line, were cars and couplers in Nn3 scale, (narrow gauge N scale) and the even smaller Z scale (1:220). Plastic body with die-cast metal chassis, factory installed fireman and engineer figures, and etched-metal screens.
