Wattman trains are very environmentally friendly.
Our trains are built exclusively with environmentally friendly materials that are easy to recycle.
All Wattman trains are powered with a silent electric motor in combination with a 72-volts battery pack that, in addition to a good operating time, is also very economical with charging. A Wattman train only costs ± 16 KwH to recharge an empty battery pack with the built-in smart charger.
With proper maintenance, our batteries will last at least 2-3 years, after which they are easy to recycle. We have customers who even use the batteries for 5 years without any problems.
Due to the high build quality of a Wattman train, it will last 10 to 15 years!
Parts are also widely available for our older models.

A quiet, safe and environmentally friendly electric train
Wattman is the only mall train manufacturer that designs and manufactures its trackless powertrain
While all other companies build their locomotive from a third party industrial vehicle (a stock chaser), the Wattman Mini Express Trackless train is built and assembled at our factory in Canada. Because of this, Wattman has constantly introduced and integrated new features and options such as the anti-collision system. From the customer support perspective, it’s reassuring to know that all parts are in stock and that the customer that will contact technical support will talk to an engineer that designed the train.
Only a company that controls its production can stand behind the product such as Wattman does. We don’t simply dress up a locomotive, we design and build it!
