Bing and other early H0/00 tinplate


Recommended Posts

Looking for something else (as always!), I came across this new heading  titled "Before Rivarossi". Obviously it's aimed at the Italian market but no less interesting for that. There is some very rare stuff illustrated.

('Google Translate' may be of assistance or I can help if necessary.)

Yet more of that awful yellow tinplate ballast! and some more deadly electrics....

Thanks for the link. I've always thought that the Bing tank engines had bags of charm but I'm also taken with the printed tinplate wagons in the Trix Express set. The electrics do look lethal though.

Brighton Toy and Model Museum among its huge collection of tinplate railway items has a fair selection of Bings. I inherited both the red and green locos and red coaches and some wagons, from my Dad - while he was still alive! Unfortunately none survived my childhood.
