Hello and welcome!
This blog was conceived in the hope that it might spur some interest in a very interesting and unique hobby that some would say has enjoyed better days.
I originally got interested in collecting old toy trains not too long ago because I have always loved antiques. Be it old houses or furniture or lighting…
So why not toys?
I set out to build a collection of prewar toy trains that would offer a reasonable representation of the major prewar manufacturers…from around the world.
Today, my train collection consists of around 400 pieces…an eclectic mixture of prewar O gauge pieces from 1900 to 1940 and a selection of obscure larger gauge pieces from all over the world.
The links along the right hand side of every page on this site lead to individualized pictures and information on most of the pieces in this collection.
You can browse the gallery of all the items in one place here
