Tracked Trains and Transportation systems

Trains have always been at the heart of Garmendale. We have lived and breathed them since the business started in 1980. We initially built them for others under contract but with 50 or more completed builds we created our own tracked train and people movers range.


They range in scale from 15″ gauge up to the much larger 24″ gauge and can be manufactured to almost any finish or to match a brand specific IP. Our experience in working with different IP’s is now extensive and our theming teams have created some beautifully themed rides around the world.


From the images below, you can see we have built the bright and colourful, beautifully traditional and the pre-distressed look. If you can imagine it, then we can probably build it.


But our biggest build to date has been the stunning Snowden Mountain Railway, where we designed and built the new rolling stock from scratch. The brief was to create a lighter, stronger carriage with a target weight of ten tons. Not only did we meet this, but the finished unladen weight was under seven tons.


There’s a video of this in operation below.
