Niek van Ees: "Although
this site is dedicated to Hornby products and the Dutch HRCA, most
of its members have a wider-ranging interest in vintage model trains
too. Besides Hornby 0 gauge, Ace Trains and Dinky Toys, I own a
modest collection of Biller Bahn. This was made by the German toy
factory Biller, which started producing Biller Bahn just after WW 2.
The scale is 0, the track is narrow gauge at 16.5 mm. If you want to
know more about its history and the range of locomotives, rolling
stock and accessories, have a look at the website
I knew Biller Bahn from
childhood when I was dreaming about it in front of a local toyshop
window. I was especially charmed by the track with its wooden sleepers
but alas, it was far too expensive for me in those days. Many, many
years later I came across some old stock at the famous Amsterdam toy
store Merkelbach and this time I was able to buy it. That was the
beginning of a new and charming collection.
