Aristocraft was once one of the major G scale suppliers with a huge range of US outline locomotives, rolling stock and buildings. They also made control sytems, track, buildings, people and other acessories.

Unfortunately they went out of buiness a number of years ago.

Aristocraft control systems under the CREST ELECTRONICS continued in the US so REVOLUTION Train Engineer units are as far as I know still be available to import.

Also a limited part of the range has been seen for sale in the US and Bachmann have introduced items like the Egg liner

Aristocraft still appears on the secondhand market but finding spares will not be easy

So, what I have left here are pictures of some of what Aristocraft made, much of it sorely missed...

 
GP40 Diesel 23500-22 - 4 motor twin axle bogies, LED lights, smoke unit, DCC ready, speaker fitted - Good solid locos
