FERRO-TRAIN, originally known as a manufacturer of brass models, has continued to develop. In the meantime, a healthy mix of small series models, the finest handcrafted models and plastic series models are produced. The fine equipment details for dioramas and systems complete the portfolio.


Leopold HALLING originally founded his company for toolmaking, corresponding orders from model railway companies such as Stängl MODELLBAHNEN and FERRO-TRAIN and a pronounced skill in model construction made him the largest manufacturer of model trams in the world over the decades.


Stängl MODELLBAHNEN were the first to develop narrow-gauge models for the Austrian market for series production! Few people know that Josef Stängl began designing simple tram models for Wiener Linien 50 years ago. When he retired in 2017, he handed over around 100 models and an immense wealth of experience.


The "first" real KSW!

Just before the end of the war, Vienna received 30 KSW, the so-called Heidelberger. They could not be put into operation until 1945, but initially retained their "protective coating". The current small series now shows one of the first KSW in the typical Viennese red and white color scheme from around 1949.

    News 2021.10 - Repairs


    We don't want to be part of the throwaway society! Of course, from a business point of view, repairing defective models out of warranty is stupid. Of course, it would be more lucrative that all models only last exactly two years and then succumb to the planned obsolescence. But all this has nothing to do with reason!

    H0e LüP 7cm with lights, decoder and sound! The new edition 2021 of the sought-after models brings more innovations than should possibly fit into this small, almost petite machine! The new coreless drive creates, aside from smooth driving characteristics, plenty of space for model updates!

    The new circuit board not only offers alternating light for the first time, but also the possibility of simply digitizing the small machine or even equipping it with sound. The loudspeaker is firmly connected to the new design weight block that fills the entire interior.

    New Buffer stops! Everything has an end, only the model railroad layout often has a lot of track ends! In order to do justice to the diversity and without claiming to be complete, we present nearly 20 (!) different, mainly H0e buffer stops!

    News 2021.10 - Cog Railway Montserrat


    La Cremallera de Montserrat! The new models of the Catalan cog railway are produced by FERRO-TRAIN with four different locomotives and suitable wagons. In addition to a new car, there are also several upgrade options avaliable for the first time, which make the cog railway experience even more impressive.

    The Cremallera de Montserrat (Catalan for zipper) is a meter-gauge rack railway in Catalonia. It leads from the Monistrol train station up to the monastery on the Montserrat mountain. With a maximum gradient of 15.6 percent, it overcomes 550 meters in altitude. The railway was opened in 1892 and operated with a total of eight steam locomotives until the 1950s.

    Vintage Tram Rome! The models of the Roman six-window vintage tram from HALLING Modelle include two railcars, two sidecars, a work car and several freight cars. The new models of the passenger trams are currently presented at the Hobby Model Expo in Milan (Novegro).

    Attention! Only a few pieces of the work car left! If you are interested, please order quickly, the model cannot be reissued.

    News 2021.09 - New Signs!


    New signs from FERRO-TRAIN! Halling Modelle launched well over a hundred new models at the beginning of the year. Including some unchanged new editions of out of print or revised new releases of popular models, but also several completely new shapes. All that with around ten employees and a somewhat quirky small company location in a green suburb of Vienna.

    Given the speed, it is not surprising that little things, no matter how beautiful, often fall under the table and do not get the limelight that they are entitled to. The finest miniatures from the brass forge FERRO-TRAIN have already brought many a "real" model railroader abruptly back to the good old days, when the world still smelled of coal smoke and mom's apple strudel*…
