Brass Model Services
At Jeff Lemke Trains, Inc. it is how you finish that counts. I work mainly in HO and O scale. When models arrive here they are immediately unpacked, inspected, and photographed before entering our insured inventory of projects. Our business process is consistent. This is a full-time professional business. Referrals are appreciated. PLEASE NOTE… At the present time my pipeline for model work is completely booked for several YEARS out… but if you have a serious need of consult regarding brass models that you want to sell or would like us to sell for you on consignment then please call us at 630-893-5719 or use the CONTACT window (scroll down) to start that dialog.
If a brass model train loco, car, structure or part is listed in our web store IT IS DEFINITELY AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE SALE. We monitor inventory every day. Our web store check-out takes you to PayPal but if you’d prefer to send a check or do a wire transfer we can help you with that too.

This video demonstrates the collaboration and capability between my studio and ELS Train Service to create lovely finished models for our clients. I performed the paint, weathering, and had custom decals made for two very rare PFM Climax Locomotives. Dennis Bartholow at ELS installed DCC, added a double speaker sound system, and lights. I know many of the other professional brass model painters in this field so if you have a specific and immediate need then I’m happy to make recommendations whenever our schedule happens to be booked solid.
Business hours are 7:30AM to 4:30PM CST Monday thru Friday and if I don’t answer your call on the first few rings then our phone system may prompt you to leave your name and a message. I return calls in the order that they are received. Thanks for looking today. Cheers!
Brass Model Resume
My painting and weathering resume includes work on more than 3,700 brass model trains. I am a life-long model railroader, research specialist, and industrial historian who specializes in the Hill Lines and the railroads and industries of Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin. I enjoy collaborating with industry associates to create positive results. I have taught custom painting to well-known brass model train importers and their builders in South Korea. This is a full time, professional occupation for me and I love what I do. Referrals are encouraged and appreciated. Thanks for visiting today. Cheers!
