Hawthorne VillageTM makes many kinds of collectible train sets and accessories for them. The trains on this page celebrate the colors and spirit of your favorite team. They run like champs. They also look great on a shelf in the "den" or "rec room." This blow-up is shown only to give you an idea of the quality of the graphics on these trains.

From a collector's, railroader's, railfan's, or baseball fan's point of view, these are exceptional products. I wish we could show every train - the graphics are stunning.

Note about Suppliers: While we try to help you get the products you want by recommending suppliers with a good record of customer service, all transactions between you and the supplier you chose to provide your trains or other purchases are governed by the published policies on the supplier's web site. So please print off any order confirmation screens and save copies of invoices, etc., so you can contact the appropriate supplier should any problems occur. (They almost never do, but you want to be on the safe side.)

The exclusive "Team Colors" Train Sets from Hawthorne Village feature:

  • Officially licensed by the appropriate teams, players' organizations, and sports organizations, perfect for the serious fan and collector
  • Wonderfully embellished with the colors, the symbols and (generally) the players of the teams
  • Marvelous craftsmanship in HO scale, ideal for home display by the true model train enthusiast
  • Masterfully crafted with a solid metal chassis and steel alloy wheels to bring you years of enjoyment
  • Engine headlight lights up and cars are illuminated from within
  • Nickel Silver tracks and power-pack are FREE - a $60 value - with the collection, and will be shipped along with the second and third train cars
  • Includes Certificate of Authenticity
  • Individual train cars are HO scale, completed oval track measures 38" x 58"

Note about Subscription Trains and Gift Sets - All of the trains on this page are available by "subscription." That means that when you order the train, you pay for and get one "issue" at a time. The first issue in the collection is always the powered locomotive, and it's always an exceptional value.About 4 weeks later, you get (and pay for) the second "issue," which usually consists of an unpowered "B Unit" locomotive and a circle of track. About four weeks after that, you get a car, usually a "vista-dome" coach and a Bachmann power supply. About four weeks after that you get another car, usually another coach and more track. You can discontinue your "subscription" at any time, and even return trains you've already got. But most people like the trains so much they keep getting them - and Hawthorne Village is going to keep making them as long as demand stays high. So depending on demand, your train could be anywhere between four and twenty "issues."

Because it takes at least the first three issues to run a train, Hawthorne Village has packaged some of the high-demand trains into "Gift Sets," sometimes called "Super Starter Sets." On this page, they're listed below the subscription trains. If you order one of these, you get the first three issues all at once, and then your subscription starts. So you'll get the fourth issue about four weeks later and so on.

Note About "Missing" Teams - A few team trains have sold out. If demand is exceptional or your team wins the championship, it may come again. In the meantime, if you don't see your train here, click on one of the other teams' trains, then do a search on your team's name when you get to the Bradford Exchange web page. Sadly, your team's train may not be available. But don't let that stop you from bookmarking this page and checking back in a few months

Collectible NFL Football Christmas Village Collection: NFL MemorabiliaNote About Team-Inspired Villages - When demand for a particular team's memorabilia is high, Hawthorne Village may issue additional collections inspired by the team. The most common is a "Christmas-village"-style village collection that includes stadiums, other buildings, miniature fans, and other accessories - everything you need to build a "team town" your railroad can serve. The NFL-inspired villages can all be accessed by clicking on the picture to the right.

Unfortunately, most of the baseball "team villages" are now out of stock. As of February, 2013, the only ones I can find are the Cardinals, Mets, Yankees, White Sox, and Red Sox. But if you order a train, stay on Bradford Exchange long enough to see if there is a village that will go with it. Just remember, these are limited editions, so if you see a village that goes with your train, don't wait too long to decide if you want it.

Then your "subscription" starts up for "real." About four weeks later, you should get the second coach and more track, then another issue will come every four weeks until you have the whole set. You can cancel any time you want, and even send pieces back you don't like. But most people want the whole set. In fact I get a lot of e-mails from folks who've got the first several pieces, then stopped their orders for some reason, but now they want to know how to get BACK on the subscription list.

Other League Trains

This section will contain other team trains that come up from time to time. Sorry, we have no idea what will become available. Usually NHL, NCAA, and (very rarely) NBA team trains will show up here only if they've won a recent championship or if there's a VERY steady demand. If you see "your" team in this section, you should know that these sets are made in extremely limited runs, so don't assume you'll get one of these if you put it on your Christmas list in April, or even October.

NASCAR

This section will contain any NASCAR trains that come up from time to time. At the moment, you'll see what looks like Two Dale Junior trains. If you click on the one on the left, you can get it an "issue" at a time (like a magazine). The first issue is the powered locomotive A unit. About 4 weeks later, you'll receive (and pay for) is an unpowered locomotive B unit and a circle of track. the third issue is a "vista-dome" coach with a power supply. The fourth issue is another coach and more track. You can cancel any time, or return any issues you don't like, but most folks get at least the first four pieces. If you click on the one on the right, you can order (and pay for) the first three issues all at once - enough to run the train on a circle of track. THEN your "subscription" will start. About four weeks after your first shipment, you will receive (and pay for) issue # 4 and so on.

You don't have to decide now - click on either picture for details. If we get any MORE NASCAR trains we'll post them here.
