Brennan's Model Railroading
Welcome to Brennan's Model Railroading Products. Established in 1997,this company is owned and operated by me, Dennis Brennan. and my wife, Sandy. Sandy joined me in the business when she retired in January of 2019. If you call us, you’ll likely hear her cheerful voice. She knows quite a bit about our products and our business. And if you have a question she can’t answer, she can usually track me down! With Sandy on the team, I can now concentrate on the stuff I do best – creating new products! She says to me all the time, “I don’t know how you ever did this all by yourself!”
I'm a lifelong hobbyist and actively building an O-gauge, hi-rail layout. I'm also a professional modeler and a freelance commercial photographer. I have written and photographically illustrated several articles for Classic Toy Trains magazine and O Gauge Railroading. My photographs have also appeared in the Classic Toy Trains 2000 calendar, Model Railroader, O-Gauge Railroading and Trains Illustrated (a short lived Kalmbach publication.)
My flagship product, Brennan's Better Ballast, was born out of a quest to find a "better" ballast than any of the commercially available products. This was soon followed by Brennan’s Natural Ground Cover materials. With the introduction of the Ultra Realistic Chain Link Fence Kit, the line has expanded into craftsman structure kits geared to the novice.
In addition to quality, my products are noted for their complete, detailed instructions that anyone can follow. Tony English, in a review of the Chain Link Fence kit for O Gauge Railroading, said, "...the instructions turned out to be not only clear but also elegantly written. Their author has a sense of style as well as an excellent grasp of sequence.” 1
Ideally, my growing product line will help you achieve a degree of realism that you may have thought unattainable. Along the way, you’ll not only enhance your modeling skills but also have a heck of a lot of fun!
