For more than 50 years, Rivarossi has been producing quality train models and has always been considered one of the most exotic producers of model trains in the railway market. With over half a century tradition of model train manufacturing, Rivarossi trains are now technically improved with fine detailing, quality can motors with flywheels, LED lighting, DCC interfaces and much more.

The company was founded in 1945 by Alessandro Rossi with a Mr. Riva. In the 1990s Rivarossi acquired Lima (1992), Jouef and Arnold (1997). In 2003 Rivarossi went into receivership.

From 1957 Rivarossi HO models were licensed and sold by Lionel as Lionel HO. The cooperation with Lionel broke down over financial issues after only a year. From 1958 Rivarossi products were sold through Athearn. After Athearn, just about all Rivarossi products, and its sister company Pocher, were distributed through AHM (Associated Hobby Manufactures).

Models are now all factory-fitted with all detail parts and packaged in protective shells and outer boxes. These models are 1:87 scale and made using the best materials. Rivarossi has some of the finest detailing and running performance available.

Looking for a geared wheel set for Rivarossi Challenger 4-6-6-4 for the rear power train

Ken - May 5, 2019

Martin, get a N Drive motor from E Bay and drop it into the existing motor can after stripping it out solder existing contacts from the pick ups to the new motor contacts at the top chop the second pole off and cut a small hole in the coal load so it drops over the motor and then raise the coal levei to hide it. It will run beautifully. I know as i did it. Good luck and the motor including post is less than a tenner.
►reply: Thanks for this Ken, much appreciated! I'll pass it on to Martin :-)

David - April 21, 2019

Hi,I'm looking for 2 pair of truck frames for a Rivarossi Krauss Maffei diesel. I believe the part numbers are P-151-013 for the front truck w/cow catcher, P-151-020 for the rear power truck frame and P-153-002-0050 for dummy truck frames. I just want the side frames for two trucks, not the gearbox of gears or wheels - but will take complete trucks if that's all i can get.Thanks in advance for any help.cheersDave

I'm looking for boiler covers for several repairable rivarossi steam locomotives. no one seems to carry these parts.

Michael - January 14, 2013

Friends:Do you know where I can obtain, parts for a Rivarossi steam locomotive? I had to remove the handrails for a project I was doing, and I lost some of the brackets that support the handrails. I'm not currently at home, but I can probably furnish a part number from the drawing which came from the locomotive (it's a Mikado steam loco). Of course, they don't have to be Rivarossi parts; if you know of another supplier who makes these brackets, I'd be happy to learn of them.Thanks!
►reply: You can always try and search for Rivarossi parts on this website or contact for example Walthers Model Railroading
