Lehmann Toy Train
Posted 02 September 2009 - 06:11 AM
Lehmann Toy Trains is a toy company which is part of Lehmann Gross Bahn (LGB) (now owned by Marklin), maker of G-scale trains. For those of you unfamiliar with "G-scale", "G" is for Garden, as in large scale garden railroad. The scale is 1:22.5 (at leats for LGB).
I've been an admirer of LGB and G-scale trains since I was a kid, only seeing them in the more expensive toy shops. Playmobil uses a very similar, if not the same scale for their trains and were even sold with brass LGB track many years ago.
What I'd like to share related to Lehmann Toy Trains, LGB's fun train for kids, is the fact that they have some very creative train sets and wagons marketed for children. While I've seen numerous Lego train models inspired from real-life trains, Lego train enthusiasts haven't really created too many "fun trains", aside from maybe a handful of Thomas trains.
Here are a few example of Lehmann's "Toy Trains":
- An exploding dynamite boxcar (I love the thought of this one)
- Themed trains like circus, black & white spotted cow, Peanuts, and Disney
- Bubble blowing car
- Dynosaur cars
(to name just a few)
I think some of these trains from Lehmann Toy Trains would make great Lego creations.
Have you tried creating any "fun trains"?
Share your thoughts.

I also recall seeing a dwarve's mining train, I think here on Eurobricks. I thought that one was a neat idea.

In regard to your Adventure Train, I can't tell you how many times I've checked your Brickshelf account admiring your fine creation. I'm a huge fan of the Adventure themes, and after seeing your Adventure Train, I wanted to build one myself. As a novice train MOCer; however, I never even knew where to start. Fabulous creation!

I'm not sure what you mean by a dinosaur car though, is it like a car to hold dino's or is it a car shaped like a dinosaur?

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
