About e*Train

A Growing treasury of Thoughtful Toy Train Information


Contacting the Editor:

TCA e*Train is the online magazine of the Train Collectors Association (TCA). Its purpose is to provide its members with an opportunity to share thoughtful articles with other members and the public. e*Train is an edited publication -- it is not a forum, nor a place for expression of contentious thoughts.

e*Train has been in operation since 2002. It currently issues a new edition quarterly. Old articles are maintained on the site, and some of the more popular topics are regularly updated. For instance, as toy train manufacturers issue new products, this information is added. Thus, an accumulation of valuable information is available here, written by people who enjoy their hobby and take it seriously.


Our first issue.

Unlike a printed magazine, e*Train never stays static. TCA also issues other publications to its members, such as the respected magazine Toy Train Quarterly.
