North Dakota's largest dealer for brass model trains, steam and diesel locomotives, passenger cars, rolling stock and kits.

Welcome to our website!
We will soon be entering our 14th year in business. The brass business has seen a lot of changes over the past twelve years, not to mention the nearly 40 years Iíve purchased my first brass model at M.B. Kleinís in Baltimore. Back then, the importers used to say these were museum quality models. With the B&O museum and the Smithsonian both within an easy drive for me then, I thought that was a bit of a stretch. However, nowadays, the brass models we are seeing are not only meeting that standard, but are in most instances better than most museum collections Iíve seen in recent years. Yes, these models arenít inexpensive, but they are increasingly becoming true works of art. So even if youíre just on our site to look, enjoy yourself. These are really works of the (modeling) art.
Incidentally, I was back in Baltimore this past summer. Kleinís is still in business, but they have now moved to Cockeysville. I didnít have time to visit. I have a meeting there next year, so maybe I get a chance to pay them a visit for old timeís sake.
