T.N. HO German Steam Freight set? (2-8-0 DB)
Posted by Safety Valve on Monday, January 20, 2020 4:05 PM

Hello, I've been on and off reaserching a train set made by T.N. and have found Nothing.... No trace of the listing existing its 6 volts DC, its a DB train set (1-4-0) 2-8-0 and the reason for my interest is I've been wanting a small Basic two DB engine for my HO 2 rail Layout (Which uses a Mixture of Rosko and Marx Track, and will be 12 volts DC, so a resistor will have to be used in the model) I'd love to know who made this, I'll be going to a show on the 26th pretty soon and I'm hoping to pick up a pair there, swiping one chassis for a 7F (S&DJR (British Railways) model) and keeping the other original

T.N. most likely stands for Trix Nürnberg, but I am not aware that they ever made a 6V DC train set. Their post WWII trains were 3 rail DC 12 Volts, marketed under the brand of Trix Express. Trix lives on until this day, now a division of Marklin.

Happy times!

I guess you are right! T.N. is the trademark for Nomura Toys of Japan, a toy manufacturer who made a tin plate train sets to be sold via department stores. 

This may be the wrong place for such a question. You should try your luck in the Classic Toy Train forum.

Happy times!
