Please note: this is both my workshop and my home, not a shop!
Sorry, customers not admitted.
This website displays my goods, but I don’t sell through the Internet. The site is regularly updated.
Only references are indicated, not prices. To get them you must ask me using one of the means indicated below. Please note that I’m not connected to the Internet.
Items are sold through the mail or at exhibitions scheduled one year ahead (See: “Où voir? –Les expos”).
Only what’s shown in the current catalogue can be delivered.
When using the mail, any order must come with payment, either by bank cheque or La Poste money order (“mandat cash”) to the order of MECANIC TRAINS.
From abroad by international giro transfer (ask me first for Mecanic Trains’ IBAN data).
Getting in touch with me
Preferably by mail. Regular customers who have been using it for 15 years are happy to have their order delivered within a few days.
Also by fax: I’ll fax you back the prices you ask for, as well as the postage.
Alternatively you can phone, but bear in mind I’m no worldwide international company! I’ll take your calls only Mondays to Fridays 10-12 am. I’m not always home, often on the road or at exhibitions. Again, see: “Où voir?- Les expos”, on this site or in the catalogue or update sheet. I also have a family life, so don’t be surprised at times if I can’t answer the phone.
About the Internet: I simply don’t have it at home, that’s the way I want it to be. Now if you won’t do without it, here are two possibilities:
Send me a fax over the Internet.

MECANIC TRAINS paper documents
The catalogue is part and parcel of the Mecanic Trains concept, a childhood dream dating back in the sixties, when catalogues of model trains makers were often our favourite bedside reading. Then the dream came true: MECANIC TRAINS unique catalogue, whose layout I make myself with painstaking care. But it’s no small cost for a micro business like mine, not included in the pricing of items, so I can’t give it away (big model trains makers don’t either…).
It consists of 20 colour pages with photographs of items with references, prices and terms of sale. It is updated several times a year. Some items can sometimes be withdrawn and replaced by new ones. If you buy the catalogue and order for more than € 80, you’ll get € 5 off the total.
A reference with a red dot –in the catalogue or on the website- means that the item is not available at exhibitions. If you want such an item upon visiting an exhibition all the same, it must be ordered at least 10 days before.
To get the catalogue from France, write a cheque for € 7 . From abroad, please contact me beforehand.
The price list: for those of you who may not share the “fan of Epoque 3”(forties to sixties) spirit of the Mecanic Trains venture, you don’t have to buy the catalogue to become a Mecanic Trains customer. If you simply want to buy replacement items for models, you can take a look at the website and just order the price list, which I’ll print updated for you for 2 ‘tarif rapide” post stamps.
THE PRICE LIST THAT IS PRINTED ON DEMAND ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO KNOW THE AVAILABILITY OF THE ACCESSORY MÉCANIC TRAINS PRECISELY TO THE MOMENT OR YOU ASK FOR IT. WHAT THERE DOESN'T REPRESENT IS EVIDENTLY MORE AVAILABLE.
The updated sheet is published every month. In it you’ll find new items –with references and prices- as well as all those previously on offer since January of the current year. General terms of sale are included too. The sheet is sent along with any delivery or price list, and included in the catalogue when a new item has been made available after the release of the latest edition. It’s also sent in reply to any request for information (please don’t forget to enclose one “tarif rapide” post stamp).
