Fleischmann was originally a tin toy company, founded in 1887 in Nuremburg, Germany. Jean Fleischmann, its
founder, produced tin toys over the next few decades, including ships, airplanes, and magnetic maritime toys. These
toys were high quality and won the gold medal at the World Exhibition in Brussels in 1910.
Fleischmann worked to continually expand the variety of toys the company offered. In 1938, it acquired models
from Doll & Co. and offered its first model railway in O gauge. The company also produced steam engines. From
that point, Fleischmann began developing and producing its own line of O gauge model railroad products.
Fleischmann worked to make its models as true to real-life trains as possible.
Fleischmann introduced its HO scale model train products in 1952 and its N scale line in 1968. It has

was purchased by Modelleisenbahn Holding GmbH in 2008. Its headquarters are located in Heilsbronn, Germany
