Welcome to the MDM LOCOMOTIVE WORKS home page. We supply 1 1/2" scale, electric powered, diesel locomotive models, power trucks, and accessories for the large scale backyard railroad hobby, AKA the live steam hobby. We primarily model locomotives built by the Electromotive Division of General Motors Corp. though many of our parts and accessories may be used to model diesel locomotives built by other manufacturers. Our models are built to the scale of 1.6" to the foot and to a track gage of either 7 1/4" or 7 1/2".
Our product line includes - individual parts, complete kits of materials including drawings and instructions, machined kits for those builders with out a machine shop, semi-finished units with all major construction complete. Our products are not the least expensive, but they are the most thoroughly detailed and highest quality locomotives available. As you examine our web site, note how the close-up photos show the realistic details on each of our locomotives.
If you are new to this hobby, please see our general large scale information page and use the links page to find out about live steam clubs, related publications, and other hobby suppliers.
