Our roots go back to 1940, when Micro-Trains® founders Keith Edwards and his twin brother Dale started making model train turnouts. They chose the name Kadee for their new enterprise. By the late 1940s, they had designed and patented the Magne-Matic® Coupler, which revolutionized model railroading. It provided a realistic looking and coupler system.

In 1972, they took the next logical step and introduced a complete freight car to the N scale line. At that point, Micro-Trains® Line, was formed as a separate division. In 1990, after continued growth and expansion, the original Kadee Co. was physically divided into two separate corporations. Micro-Trains Line® Co. Inc., one of the two new companies, retained manufacturing rights to all products in N, Nn3 and Z scale.

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. The fit, finish, and detail of each item produced is celebrated throughout the railroad modeling community.

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! For more information about Micro-Trains Line Company click here:
