another unknown maker

Postby chateauman » Thu Jun 07, 2012 7:43 pm

My son has shown me another of his trains , this one is marked VEB . Does anyone know this maker ? It dates from the era of east Germany, there is a small paper inside the box showing an address in the DDR which I think was communist Germany. Good quality, heavy as a tank, but another non-runner which lights up but does not move.

It is either piko or Gutzold. VEB was the collective term for both manufacteurs before the fall of the iron curtain

Since there is some paperwork with it, try some of the terms from that in a search engine and see where that leads. You can expect a fair number of German language sites to turn up, but machine translation should help; just relaxed be and flexibly thinking...
