    Hi.

    I'm looking for model trains based on the Nazi Ea period, such as Hitler's Train, German Trains used during the War, etc.

    Can anyone cite a company? Preferably N Gauge, but HO/OO will do.

    Thanks!

    For general German trains of the time period, Marklin produces HO and Z, and Trix (now owned by Marklin) and Fleischmann HO and N. German modellers call the 1920s to 1945 "Era II", so look for that designation.

    EDIT: Since you said "HO/OO", I'll assume you're in Britain, or at least used to British prototypes. German models use the same HO and N as American models, 1/87 and 1/160.

    Yes. All N gauge is compatible, unless you get very small rail sizes. Peco track will take anything that runs.

    You beat me to it Lester! I just noticed those trains made by Liliput in the Historic Rail catalog and thought of this thread! :)
