  • The repair guarantee is for the cost of labor only.
    The Train Doctor will not be held liable or responsible for items in transit.
  • All items must be shipped with insurance and will be returned with insurance.
  • The Train Doctor will not be responsible for delays due to unavailability of parts, inability to contact the customer for repair approval or to discuss the repairs.
  • The Train Doctor will make every effort to repair your model train in a timely manner.

Cleaning & Lubrication

Model trains should be cleaned and lubricated based on their usage. The more you use your trains the more often they should be cleaned and lubricated. For instance, clean and lube once a year for high usage locos and every 2-3 years for shelf queens.

Repairs

Poor maintenance can cause mechanical or electrical problems that will cause a train to need repair. Toy trains that are not operated for many years, mishandled, or not stored properly are also candidates for our services. The Train Doctor can skillfully diagnose your train, and make the needed repairs.
