Question by : Can anyone identify a Fleischmann model train locomotive?
I have a Fleischmann steam locomotive that is marked “made in U.S. Zone Germany”
They started making HO scale in 1952 and the occupation ended in 1955. Does this mean it was made in those years? It is marked with # 1360 and 01 1952.

That is actually one of the earliest Fleischmann models produced; It was introduced in 1952 and in continuous production fro a Number of years after that. It is possible models produced after 1955 still said :US zone” just due to old tooling, but by the late 50’s every Fleischmann I’ve seem said “W. Germany”
