MiTrains® Categories

All items are allocated to a category.

Micro-Trains(tm) collectors may allocate their cars according to the Series or first 3 digits of the Micro-Trains(tm) catalog number. All these categories are supplied.

Those in other scales may wish to use the Freight Car category for all their cars or establish categories based on the car type. i.e. box, refer, gondola, etc. It's your choice.

You can use the categories supplied, modify them and add your own. Even transfer items from one category to another.

The Description Reference Table is divided into  11 sub tables including an extra one just for you. You can allocate any of these to any category. Simple flexibility!

You may also group categories together for viewing or printing.
