Many companies tried to copy our successful train, and many folded. No one has ever succeeded to create a similar train in building quality and reliability.
Frequently Asked Questions
You don’t buy a train every day, so we answer the most frequently asked questions here.
If you have a question that we do not answer here, you can always contact us without any obligation.
Our trains have been manufactured since 1999 in our factory located in Granby (QC), Canada.
Wattman does not produce trains in countries such as China and Turkey, despite many manufacturers who claim to do so. A train not produced in Canada is just a copy.
We are often asked why there are so many suppliers who apparently produce the same train at often much lower prices.
If you look closely, after our first introduction of the Mini Express train, many companies did not make much effort to create their own design. Most companies have blatantly copied our design down to the last detail and even use our pictures, descriptions, and also our specifications.
However, if you do good research you will see the big differences in quality!
A Wattman train is certainly not the cheapest train available on the market, but if you are looking for a reliable and safe train, there are not many alternatives.
At Wattman we first look at quality, safety, and sustainability and only then at the price.
