Blackstone Models was created in 2004 as a division of SoundTraxx, the foremost manufacturer of sound systems for model trains. SoundTraxx has been designing, manufacturing and selling sound systems since 1990.

While our models are exquisite to look at, they are first and foremost designed to be run. Unlike most other model train manufacturers, we start with the newest technology in sound and electronics and design our models around them. Add to this an inherent fussiness to make the most authentic model possible, and you've got the makings of some truly extraordinary products. HOn3 is fun again!

Our models come ready-to-run with free-rolling trucks and factory-installed Kadee® No. 714 couplers.

With a staff of professionals dedicated to creating new and exciting models, Blackstone Models continues to innovate with each product released. Our dedicated staff revels in pushing the envelope and finding new ways to add uniqueness and excellence to each model. As SoundTraxx has been a leader in sound technology, Blackstone Models has become a leader in the design and production of Hon3 models.
