Keep your toy trains running smoothly with repairs by Coulter O Gauge Repair Service.



Barry Coulter is an old time train enthusiast, dating back from his childhood when he received his first toy train as a Christmas gift at the age of 8 years old.  He has always enjoyed trains during his entire lifetime.  

For over 40 years, Barry's profession was automotive repairs.  While serving his country in the army, Barry was a helicopter mechanic, after which he was hired by Caterpillar Tractor Company as an inspection specialist.  His passion for automotive repair lured him away from that job  to build his own private auto repair business where he worked for over 30 years repairing all makes of cars and trucks.  

Finally, Barry's family was raised and now came the time when he could return to his boyhood passion of trains and his heart's desire of model railroading.  

Barry Coulter's rich heritage of railroading began with his Grandfather and Great Grandfather Coulter who worked at the C, B & Q railroad in central Illinois all during their adult lifetimes. 


Below is a photograph of my Grandpa Charles Coulter when he was Section Foreman of CB&Q working out of Oak Hill, Illinois.










Grandpa Coulter lived along the tracks at Yates City, Illinois, near the depot.  His daughter bought the property next door and she continued to live there the rest of her life. Barry played at that home along the tracks many years while he was growing up and he has many happy childhood memories of trains. 

His family instilled in his heart a great passion for model railroading. After 60 cherished years of operation, that Lionel train set that Barry received from his father still runs perfectly today.

Using over 40 years experience as a professional mechanic, Barry Coulter is highly skilled and knowledgeable about model train repairs and maintenance.  

We dedicate this website to my Grandpa Charles Coulter (1884-1937) who gave 38 years of his life to working for the railroad.
