Wattman trains are very environmentally friendly.
Our trains are built exclusively with environmentally friendly materials that are easy to recycle.
All Wattman trains are powered with a silent electric motor in combination with a battery pack that, in addition to a good autonomy, is also very economical with charging. A Wattman train only costs ± 9 KwH to recharge an empty battery pack with the built-in smart charger.
With proper maintenance, our batteries will last at least 2-3 years, after which they are easy to recycle. We have customers who even use the batteries for 5 years without any problems.
Due to the high build quality of a Wattman train, it will last 10 to 15 years!
Parts are also widely available for our older models.
The Mini Express Express train comes standard with a locomotive and 4 wagons of your choice.
We can also deliver this train as a 3-car configuration for smaller venues or start your business at a lower cost; you can always choose to add an extra wagon later.
You can choose the wagon model that fits your needs the best. You can choose the traditional combination: coal wagon, passenger wagon, and caboose OR only passenger wagons, it’s your choice.
Wattman is the only mall train manufacturer that designs and manufactures its trackless powertrain
While all other companies build their locomotive from a third party industrial vehicle (a stock chaser), the Wattman Mini Express Trackless train is built and assembled at our factory in Canada.
Because of this, Wattman has constantly introduced and integrated new features and options such as Regenerative Drive. From the customer support perspective, it’s reassuring to know that all parts are in stock and that the customer that will contact technical support will talk to an engineer that designed the train.
Only a company that controls its production can stand behind the product such as Wattman does. We don’t simply dress up a locomotive; we design and build it!
Our wagons are designed with an eye for detail; rich colors, high-quality workmanship, and premium components.
The most popular color combinations for the locomotive are Red with Yellow trim and Black with Red trim, which we have in stock as standard.
In addition to our standard colors, you can have the train build in almost any color.

Our trains have always had the ability to operate outdoors and are proven in hot and cold climates. We have trains that run in winter in Moscow, as well as in summer in Indonesia and Australia.
However, there are certain situations where waterproofing optimizes outdoor operations. If you are worried about rain, snow, wind and cold, we offer waterproofing options that combat these elements that allow continuous operations and relieve downtime due to the weather.
These options apply to wagons and locomotives. Whether it’s winding windows on all units, windshield locomotives and a top-down door on the locomotive, upgrading with weather protection options will provide more comfort for your passengers as well as for the driver.
Sound in Motion
All our trains are equipped with our characteristic Sound in Motion system as standard; this system produces steam engine sounds based on the train’s speed that makes the experience even more realistic
