Brass Model Train Professional Repairs by Jeff Lemke Trains, Inc. is a service we perform for clients around the world. Our hourly rate is $39. When you need a Brass Model Train repaired—or even a portion of one repaired—expect great results from our shop. We work on steam, diesel, electrics, rolling stock, and structures—new or old, painted or unpainted, whole models, portions of models, and sub-assemblies too.

Demonstrated fluency in properly repairing factory painted Brass Model Trains is paramount these days. Case in point is this massive 1/48th O Scale Oriental Limited Samhongsa Great Northern Railway N-3 2-8-8-0 that was hand-carried into our shop. When this model arrived, it could not not pull its own tender. There were 27 broken solder joints, the rear frame pulled apart, and the power reverse that was supposed to work, did not.

Those were the issues needing repair. Fair enough.

But the often-overlooked reality of making repairs on something of this nature is its remarkable size and weight. This particular locomotive weighs 9 LBS. Therein lies the true problem. The real trick is not damaging all of the other delicate parts while repairing the broken and loose parts. Situational awareness is key to success here.

Most models can be repaired but the only way to know for sure is to give us a call to discuss it. That's step number one.

Thanks for looking today. Cheers!
