The NTRAK Steam Annual is an annual publication for lovers of N Scale steam engine models


When the first edition of the N Scale Steam Locomotive Information Book was published in 1992, steam railroading in N scale was in many ways still in its infancy. Enterprising N scale modelers worked to improve both the look and performance of these locomotives, and they began to share their techniques and tips with others. NTRAK captured many of these ideas in the original Steam Locomotive Information Book, and in its six edition updates through 2006.

Beginning in 2007, NTRAK published its first Addendum to the N Scale Steam Locomotive Information Book. Additional volumes were published in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2015.

It is our hope that this collection of N scale steam locomotive articles--reviews, improvements and kitbashes—will inspire more readers and modelers to join in the fun of N scale steam railroading—and in the continued sharing of new ideas, innovations, and inspirations.
