LGB, a name well known to model train enthusiasts, was introduced by Ernst Paul Lehmann Patentwerk in Nuremburg, Germany, in 1968. The company introduced electrically powered G-scale trains, larger than popular O-scale and HO-scale trains. In fact, LGB stands for Lehmann Gross Bahn or Lehmann's Big Train. LGB trains are four times bigger than trains in HO-scale, and the size of these larger trains makes them easy to assemble and operate. Many hobbyists run LGB trains as garden trains or sets located out of doors: the trains are that big and that durable. In 2006 LGB spun off a branch of the company called LGB of America, which catered to hobbyists in the United States and Canada. Shortly after, M퀌_rklin, the huge German toy company took over the European LGB after Ernst Lehmann filed for bankruptcy protection.
