model railroad wiki

February 18, 2013

Brass models are scale models, typically of railroad equipment, bridges and occasionally buildings, which are made of brass or similar alloys. Brass traditionally offered finer detail than traditional die-cast and plastic models, although both made considerable advances in the 1990s. Brass models are considered collector pieces and are often used for display purposes, due to their museum quality, rather than model railroad operations. They are considerably more expensive than other types of models due to the limited production quantities and “handmade” nature of the product itself.
