Welcome to Frate-N, The home of Australian N-Scale ready to run Model Railway Equipment.

Frate-N's aim is to promote the Australian N Scale model railway scene and to encourage new modellers to participate in this great hobby by providing Quality, Ready-To-Run Locomotives, Rolling Stock, as well as Structures and Accessories, to the Australian N-Scale modeller, at a competitive and, at the same time maintaining an on-going improvement to our Product Range.

Please feel free to contact us at Frate-N, as we would like to know your opinion of our product range. If you are a current customer, or if there are any specific models you would like us to introduce, or you have any questions you would like answered.

* As a result of demand for Frate-N products, especially locomotives we are now only building and supplying our locomotives to order at present as the locomotives are selling faster than we can produce them the same applies to our range of wagons and structures.

CONTACT US

Frate-N was established in April 2002, by Peter Cartwright and Greg Young with the aim of promoting N Scale Australian Model Railways, by providing ready to run quality model trains at an affordable price.
Frate-N was born out of frustration by a lack of Australian N Scale model trains being available to purchase as ready to run. There have for many years, been available, a range of kits and modelling accessories for the N Scale modeller, if you know where to purchase them. If you were lucky enough to get some models, you then had to have the skills to put them together and paint them. .
Both Peter and Greg have full time employment on a permanent basis outside of our modelling. We both ask that you take this into consideration if at times we are a little slow on replacing sold out stock from our range. This is still a hobby to both of us and at the prices we charge for the time spent, neither of us would be able to pay the rent.
If you would like to ask us any questions, or would like to contact us please do so:
