Affiliated with the Hornby Railway Collectors` Association (England).

Our aim  -  Preserving the great old toy trains of the past, and having fun at the same time!   Meeting people with similar interests,  and putting on displays to show the charm of these old toys to the modern world!

Catering for the original Hornby trains, both 0 gauge and Dublo, made by Meccano Ltd. The first Hornby Trains were made in 1920, Dublo was introduced in 1937, Meccano Ltd stopped production in 1964.   We also cater for all brands of toy trains, particularly those made 40 years or more ago - but we are flexible  and modern reproductions in the old style are welcome too.
     At present there are five pages to this site.    For these click on the icons at left.

   After World War 2  Meccano Ltd., Liverpool, only produced one electric powered 0 gauge loco, and that for a short time only - and for export.   Perhaps using prewar mechanisms.   The French factory of Meccano Ltd. however continued 0 gauge electric toy train production for several more years.
