SERIES BEGINS MARCH 2019
*Rendering shown for representation only.

Micro-Trains is excited to announce our newest series; the Thomas Kinkade Painter of LightTM Series! This N scale series will feature twelve remarkable Thomas Kinkade paintings on black boxcars and will also include a locomotive and caboose. Each car will be equipped with interior lighting that can be turned on and off from the outside of the car using a wand, to illuminate the painting on the side of the car. Cars will also be available without the interior lighting component.

Thomas Kinkade, the Painter of Light™, emphasized simple pleasures and inspirational messages through his art – and the branded products created from that art. From textiles, to collectibles, to music and books, Thom believed that both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings had been given to him as a gift. His goal as an artist was to touch people of all faiths and to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images he had created.

With Interior Light...$39.95 each
Without Interior Light...$31.95 each
