Who would have thought a Milwaukee-based model railroading company could reach overseas to bring joy to a family experiencing hardship?

As we’ve seen in the news, Italy has been overwhelmed by the impact of COVID-19. A few weeks ago, our Walthers Facebook page received a heartwarming message from the Marsh home in Naples, Italy. Although Italian citizens had been placed under a strict lockdown, they were able to find joy by working together on a model railroad layout. This brought much-needed smiles during these difficult times.

Despite the 4,885 miles between Milwaukee and Naples, heartwarming moments like this remind us that no matter the activity, spending time together can help us pull through!

Walthers is a Milwaukee-based International Model Railroading company, dedicated to helping everyone find the information, supplies and equipment they need to make model railroading fun, just as they’ve been since 1932. As a distributor of model railroad products from around the world and also the manufacturer of seven of model railroading’s leading brands, Walthers offers the industry’s most comprehensive selection of realistic high-quality trains for novices, intermediate modelers, and experts.
