Super Tinplate

ACE Trains capture all the spirit of an earlier period of vintage ready to run model trains. They have retained all the glamour and excitement without stretching the idiom into all the electronic gizzmos of recent years. If you want steam engine noises get a live steam loco.

Re-defining Gauge 0

If you want all the pipes and rivets go fine scale. If you want weight rugged performance and do not wish to spend your precious train playing time cleaning track and worrying about reverse polarity go for three rail ACE. No need to re invent the wheel. If you insist on two rail you have the option with ACE from 2009 onwards – total flexibility.

From Roy James, UK – Christmas 2019

‘Whenever I enter my train shed and see your locomotives, memories come flooding back of Hornsey train shed in the 1940’s.

I have great admiration for your locomotives designed not only to look like the prototype, but the running capabilities are excellent.’
