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 because I have always loved antiques, whether houses or furniture or lighting.
So why not toys? Antique toys….
I set out to build a collection of prewar toy trains that offered a reasonable representation of the major prewar manufacturers…from around the world.
My toy train collection consists of an eclectic mixture of prewar O gauge pieces from the late 1800s to the start of WW II and a few truly antique large scale trains from all over the world…unique…and antique!
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 the collection, or browse the gallery of all the pieces in one place here.
P.S. If you want to contact me, you can email me here
