Custom Painting

If you can't BUY it... BUILD it!

I work primarily with Micro-Scale decals and Tru-Color paints. I have been custom-painting N scale motive power and rolling stock for two decades. I personally model and paint Pacific Northwest roads, but with decals and reference photos and I'll bring all your ideas to the rails...

  • $40 for most diesel locomotives
  • $50 for most steam locomotives
  • $25 for most rolling stock
  • All levels of weathering
  • Passenger Train interiors painted & riders added (great with interior lighting!)
  • Discounted prices for simple paint work, bulk jobs, passenger or unit trains
  • Decals and paint are additional (no markup), or you may provide them
  • I paint trains in N, Z, HO, and other scales. The sky's the limit!

Custom Benchwork

From the real forest, to a miniature world

I will build benchwork to fit any room, any shape of layout. Sectional, shelf layouts, even islands! We start with straight, clean white pine (or more premium materials), sizing each beam individually and countersinking the hardware. You can choose any height with any level of cross bracing (for heavier trains scenery). Also, underside space can be used for storage or a second layout! Just add a sheet of pink foam and maybe some quality foam or cork roadbed, and you're ready to lay rails!

Fit your space perfectly

Find the best balance between room space and train space! Don't sacrifice your walkways just to use cheap hollow core doors. Instead, plan your perfect world and get those trains rolling SOONER! Delivery available in Northern California.

Core design

Not sure where to start? We can take your room measurements and draft your benchwork out to match your imagination, while keeping things like viewing height and aisles with ADA access in consideration. We can work together to get your blend of track, scenery and viewpoints 'just right' for whatever trainspace you have. Use the form below and let's get to work!
