QUOTE (BRITHO @ 2 Jun 2008, 12:50) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>If memory serves I believe they were part of the Piko 'group' in the old days of the DDR. As such they are primitive by modern standards and almost certainly came with hook and loop couplings.


For once your memory is correct, although it was, AFAIK more of a "consortium".

They did indeed come with hook & loop couplings & some were very crude. On the other hand some very good, some coaches came with lights as standard (& a very good pickup system) & real glass for the windows. They also did some excellent articulated double decker stock.

AFAIK, the products were manufactured if many different locations which is the reason the quality varied so much.
