Tinplate toys from Nuremberg from 100 years ago

Faszination Modellbahn International Fair for Model Railways, Specials & Accessories Bild Spur 1 SPZH Freinsheim uai

The Friends of the Freinsheim/Pfalz Toy Museum (Bing Museum) present a rare 1-gauge layout from the years 1900-1928. The models are mainly from Bing and Bub.

The layout impresses with its large suspension bridge with a length of 2.2 m and 2 circles with long trains! Some trains run with real steam. Streetcars and rack railroads are shown inside! Many technical gadgets can be triggered by visitors with buttons, such as the level crossing, the guard coming out of the house, the dispatcher raising the flag, etc.

There is also a roller coaster and funfair models on display, all in operation, some powered by Sterling motors.

Another highlight is a train depot with a turntable! The presentation is decorated with historical trees, bushes and tinplate buildings
