JLM Trains, L.L.C.


We are currently tooling up for a line of Carlisle & Finch reproductions. Since there is a lack of parts available for this brand, we will make all parts available separately as tooling is finished and they become available. The Mining Locomotive and Ore Cars will be first. Tooling for the motor is underway as are the wheel patterns. Trolleys will most likely follow, then a Locomotive and Freight Cars. Let us know what you would like to see completed first, or if you have any special requests.
