Welcome to the website of Ed’s Garten Bahn

 

Why Ed’s Garten Bahn?

Since 2012 we from Ed’s Garten Bahn produce small series of models in scale 1:22.5. We are unique with this in several ways: we use modern techniques like 3D printing and our business model offers us the possibility to produces models again and again at the same price. Besides that we offer a large freedom in choosing numbers, colours and components. The only thing we ask you is to give us the time to produce the model. We don’t have stock, every model is built especially for you. So no limited series, you don’t have to rush in deciding before a model is sold out.

A short video with some of our products can be seen here.

Especially for our customers in Switzerland

Starting 6-11-2018 you can order all our models in the shop or webshop of World of Trains in Dürnten (ZH). World of Trains (www.world-of-trains.ch) is synonymous with the world of model trains. They are one of the leading retailers in the area of model trains with several scales and brands and with over 30.000 items they offer everything a model train lover wishes for.

We from Ed’s Garten Bahn are very enthusiastic about this cooperation. With this we offer our Swiss customers a local point of contact for advice about our models and viewing of the models. World of Trains will take care of the complete process: from ordering (in all variations as you are used to) up till the delivery of your order, they will do this for you.
 
 

Prices in 2019

Last year pricing for many purchase parts raised. As an example we would like to mention wheel rims (up 12%) and Bühler motors (up 11%). Also 3D Printing became more expensive.
Because of these raises we have to raise some of our prices as well. The maximum raise on selected models is 5% (€ 50,-). The average raise of the total pricelist is 0,95 %. Models that were annouced this year did not increase in price (RhB Ge 3/3 214-215, RhB Ge 4/4 181, RhB Ge 4/4 182, MOB ABDe 8/8).

The new prices are valid starting 1-1-2019, so we’re offering you the possibility to order at the current prices.

The new pricelist can be downloaded here.
 
 

MOB ABDe 8/8 also available in a shorter version

Our models are always built in true-to-scale (1:22,5). This means that our carriages are 80 cm long in stead of 68 cm, which is the standard for other suppliers of Swiss models. Because many customers build their garden layout based on these shorter models, there can be problems with our true-to-scale models. In the (often too tight) kurves is the overhead caternary or a tunnelentrance in the way.
To accomodate these customers we offer some of our trains in a shorter scale (RhB Be 4/4 Vorortpendel, RhB ABe 4/4 Fliegende Rhätier, FO BDeh 2/4 Triebwagen).
Starting today the model of the MOB ABDe 8/8 can also be ordered in this shorter scale. A complete train has a lenght of 1356 mm (original 1464 mm). There are no differences between materials and looks of these models.

For more information please contact us via info(at)edgb.nl or the contactform.

First announcement for a new model in 2018!

The first new model for 2018 that we would like to introduce to you is the model of the RhB Ge 4/4 181. This locomotive originally started its life at the Bernina Bahn as a locomotive with 6 axles (6/6), but due to several problems with the driving rods it was chaged into a 4/4 in 1929. In 1970 the loco was put aside and transferred to the Train Museum of Blonay-Chamby, were it was regularly used until 1990. It then became part of the static fleet. This year BC is organizing a big Bernina Festival and the loco will be driving again.
The model is 610 mm long and has several functions. These can be found here.

Ed’s Garten Bahn celebrates 5 years

On 12-12-2012 Ed’s Garten Bahn was enlisted in the Chamber of Commerce. So we are celebrating 5 years! During these 5 years we’ve accomplished a lot: many models, AutoMobilia. And we were part in fulfilling the dream of many customers. Either with one of our models, but also with specific parts, custom built bogies etc. All the talks we had shared the passion for our fantastic hobby: large scale railroading. The unique possibilities of 3D printing made it possible to build small series. We saw the advantages already 5 years ago. And we will continue this for the following years.

 

Ed’s Garten Bahn supports MGBahn-Historic foundation

 

In 2016 th foundation MBBahn-Historic (www.mgbahn-historic.ch) was founded. This foundation sets the goal to keep classic FO, VZ en BVZ locos for the future. Because we build all these locos we decided to support MGBahn-Historic starting now with a donation of € 50,- for every of these models sold.
So wehn you buy one of these models you not only get an unique model, you also help to save the original for the future!

Test of the Tm 2/2 in Gartenbahn Profi

kP1090506

Gartenbahn Profi performed a test on the Model of the RhB Tm 2/2. This test can be downloaded here (.PDF, 3MB).
In this test some recommendations are made. These will be implemented in the design in the following days. A bigger bottom plate will be installed and the lights will be changed at the backside. Smaller SMD leds will be used so that the backside can be closed. The windows will show black frames. A sidewindow that can be opened however will not be made possible while the construction will be too weak.
