M-K-T Katy Modelers Information
Modeling the Katy Railroad exists in many forms, from finely detailed, handmade, exact scale craftsman models to ready to run out-of-the box locomotives, engines and cars. No matter your level of expertise, keeping the memory of the Katy alive through the hobby of model railroading is appreciated. Some Ready-to-Run locomotives, freight cars and cabooses in the Katy livery have been produced, but for the most part Katy models are few and far between. Hallmark Models, Pecos River Brass and a few others have produced brass locomotives, cabooses, passenger and freight cars. Many very skilled modelers have custom built, detailed, painted, and decaled fine examples various locomotives, rail cars and equipment of the Katy Railroad. Most are satisfied with “Stand-Off Scale” modeling, painting and decaling of off the shelf models that look good. Hopefully the photos and information provided in Katy Modelers Information will assist you in modeling projects.

KRHS Katy Flyer Magazines and Calendars feature many rare and historic photographs of the Katy Railroad that are great for collecting and research.
