Welcome to our corner of the hobby world.

At Eurobahn Ottawa, we specialize in European scale model trains, vehicles and accessories, especially the ones that are harder to find. No North American models here. And no British models.

So if you're looking for a source for a wide variety of European scale models, then you've come to the right place.

We've been in business since 1996 and in that time we've become familiar with the products of many manufacturers that are not well known outside of Europe. We now offer many of these fine products to our customers. We are usually where the others are not. So if you're having trouble finding a source for a particular model, then chances are good that we can meet your need.

SPECIAL SALES EVENTS

We used to hold special inventory clearance sale events twice a year, but we no longer maintain an active inventory and so we no longer hold such sales.

ABOUT EUROBAHN OTTAWA

What do we offer you?

Eurobahn Ottawa offers you knowledgable access to a very wide range of European scale model trains, vehicles and accessories from nearly any European manufacturer (except for a few small companies that sell only directly to you).

How are we different?

Eurobahn Ottawa regularly sells models from a large number of different manufacturers. Some of these will be very familiar to you, while many of the others are small and not as well known.

We can get you anything in the current product lines of the best-known companies, like Herpa and Roco for example. But mainly we know and we sell the distinctive, high-quality products of companies like Auhagen, Heris, Liliput, Rietze, Tillig, Viessmann, Wiking and others. In most cases, we are the only Canadian source for their products.

Take a look at our Models page to see a list of the many different companies whose products we offer, and for direct links to their official websites where you can get detailed information about what's available.

What kinds of models do we sell?

We sell models from many different manufacturers and in many different scales, from 1:220 (Z scale) up to 1:12. But we concentrate on models in HO scale (1:87), N scale (1:160) and TT scale (1:120, halfway between HO and N).

We get our models directly from Europe. We don't get any of our models in North America. That enables us to carry lots of models that others simply don't have and probably don't know about - we try to be where the others aren't.

We do not maintain a limited inventory of models for immediate delivery to you. Instead, we order specific models from among the products of the manufacturers to which we have access and we then deliver those models to you.

Where's the long list of models to choose from?

Rather than spending a lot of time updating a small inventory list that's always changing, we could try to lure you with long automated lists of models that we don't actually know much about and that might not actually exist.

Many manufacturer product announcements are for new models that will be produced only if enough advance orders arrive and so product announcements frequently never result in a product that you can actually buy.

Lots of other companies deal in such fantasies. But we don't believe in that approach and that fact alone makes our website unusual. We don't imply that we can get you models that we maybe cannot get. Instead, we try to tell you here about the kinds of models that you actually can order from us.

Use the links on our Models page to see what the various manufacturers are offering and to get the model numbers and descriptions. If it is on a manufacturer's website, then we can probably order it for you.

We regularly buy the products of ten or more different manufacturers whose products we get directly from Europe in preference to using restrictive and/or expensive North American sources. Plus we can get you products directly from another twenty or more companies as and when customers want them. So we are not talking about a small number of products. We could put up photos and descriptions and realistic prices for all or just the most important products of all these companies, but it would take a lot of time and the Internet costs would be huge. Our customers would have to pay for all this cost and effort and we don't think you or they would want to do so.

So how do you know what models you can get from us?

By sending us an e-mail telling us what kind of models you're interested in (with model numbers when you have them) or by simply calling us and asking what's available at the moment.

You'll discover that we offer you access to lots of interesting models and manufacturers that you can't easily find or deal with, even if you knew about them.

How do you pay us?

If you have a Canadian address, you can pay us by Interac e-Transfer, or with a cheque drawn on a Canadian chartered bank, or by a Canada Post money order. If you are located outside Canada, then the best way is to pay us via electronic inter-bank transfer (contact us for the SWIFT and bank account codes your bank will need). Alternatively, you can pay us via Western Union and (at least in the case of Canada) your national postal system. We are no longer accepting credit cards after mid-August 2019. Also, sorry, but we do not accept PayPal.
