What is G Scale (Gauge II) Model Trains

August 10, 2013

G gauge was released from Ernst Paul Lehmann Patentwerk under their brand name of LGB, meant for outdoor/indoor use. The biggest European manufacturer of G gauge railways, and considered the one that really made garden railways famous. Their railroads are sold as the Lehmann Garten Bahn (or “Lehmann Big Railways”). Lehman Patentwerk was founded in 1881 and started manufacturing LGB in 1968. The remains of the company, subject to seemingly endless litigation, had been bought by Märklin, and facturing of certain items seems to be continuing. The American side of the business, known formerly as LGB of America LGBoA, has somewhat less clear position in the newly arranged company under the Märklin aegis. LGB manufactures models of US and European originals, of diesel, steam and electric prototypes as well as a big range of accessories, trucks and coaches.
