LGB, The world's first "G-Scale" train. was born in 1968. But the family history of LGB goes back a long way to 1881, when Ernst Paul Lehmann founded a small toy-making company in Brandenburg, Germany. Lehmann had a keen eye for new ideas and his "patent" toys, like the honking Tut Tut auto and slying Ikarus airplane soon gave "Ernst Paul Lehmann Patenwerk" a worldwide reputation for toy innovation. Lehmann's cousin, Johannes Richter, joined the company in 1921 and build on Lehmann's reputatin with patented toys like the ingenious Skiroff skier. After the East German government seized the company in 1948, Richter moved his family and the family firm to Nurnburg in the West. Then, 20 years later, Richter's sons, Eberhard and Wolfgang, introduced the family's boldest invention: LGB- The Big Train.

Pick up the train- feel the weight
A Z-Scale passenger car weighs less that 1 oz.(7 grams)

An HO-Scale passenger car weighs about 6 ounces (170 grams)

But a LGB Streamline passenger car weighs more than 4 1/2 ounces(2100 grams)! This weight comes from the larger size and stronger materials of the G-Scale LGB trains.
These trains are replicas of real trains.
