W elcome to the cyber space home of Hobby-Tronics.  We are no longer building layouts commercially.  We have retired to Oregon and we are enjoying it very much.

We have built a 40 x 50 shop and outfitted it with state of the art wood working equipment.  The center piece is a 48x96 ShopBot CNC router.  With this shop we are now engaged in the building of scale model buildings for the live steam hobby.  This is mainly in the 1/8th scale realm but we have done bigger and even some smaller for the G scale community.

As we learn more about our machines capabilities we will venture into the area of rolling stock for the live steam hobby.  We hope to produce a line of steam era pieces that will include stock cars, outside brace boxcars, and maybe even a reefer or two.  We have already produced some work for a 2 1/2 inch scale narrow gauge caboose and the customer was quite pleased.

We are not completely out of the layout business however as we are using our shops capabilities to produce some specialty layout products for some select clientele.  If you have any questions or need some guidance please drop us an email:
