Advertising Policy

Background is not intended to be a commercial venture and the fact that any advertising appears on this website at all is a bit of a fluke.  While experimenting with Google's Adsense program for another project an ad appeared for Pressier figures.  Taking a closer look at the ads that appeared I began to believe that many of them would be of interest to model railroaders. (I mean, where else can you find ads for little plastic people that stand less than an inch tall.)  As such, ads have been put in place where they seem appropriate.


It is our intent to never allow any type of Pop-Up (Over or Under) or any other type of obtrusive or non family oriented advertising on this site.  Generally only ads that we believe will add value to a train fan will be used, which means railroad or toy related or seasonal ads.  Additionally, on occasion, ads may be placed in non-prime positions for companies that may have in one form or another supported this effort.  (Sometimes unwittingly.)

Terms of Use

Little Toy Trains is operated as a hobby and anyone using it does so at their own risk.  Although the train show/event information is gathered from sources believed to be reliable, it is presented without warranty, as these events are often being presented by volunteers and are subject to change or be cancelled.  Wherever possible and known we will try to provide a source of additional information that is more closely associated with the individual event so that the end user can validate the information.
