Ed’s Gartenbahn announced ‘AutoMobilia’, a new car system for G scale. Car systems have been available for the smaller scales for a long time (with the Faller Car System being the most popular), but so far never in G scale. Here’s what Ed’s Gartenbahn has to say about the new AutoMobilia system:
Ed’s Garten Bahn introduces one of the missing items for your garden layout: moving cars.
Until now cars on the garden layout are always passive, they are parked near houses or stations. With the AutoMobilia System by Ed’s Garten Bahn you can finally change this.
Every car uses a Bühlermotor which is powered by a small LiPo Battery. A charger is always added. On the bottom of the car a small magnet follows the wire in the road. The steering front wheels make sure the car is going in the right direction. All you have to do is switch the car on and it will run for at least 4 hours.
The wire can be grinded in the existing road. The diameter of the wire is just 1 mm, so a small slot is sufficient. A special attachment for the Dremel tool is available with us or at your local hardware store. It’s important to have the wire just below the road-surface.
Or you can buy ready to use parts to create a road. Several different parts like straight track, curves, switches and a turning-loop are available. The track is showing a stone motive which will be a visual addition to your layout.
The following models are already available (more models are being developed):
- Volkswagen Bully T1, yellow/white (also usable as a Swiss Postbus)
- Citroën Hy, red.
Both models are available for an introduction price of € 229 until 1 March 2016. Regular price: € 259.

Dutch small series manufacturer Ed’s Gartenbahn now offers a kit to convert a standard LGB RhB Ge 2/4 loco into a RhB Ge 2/4 with road number 221 or 222. The kit requires the LGB donor loco (the chassis and some other parts are needed), and comes with all other necessary parts. The body is sprayed in a colour of the customer’s choice.
The price for the kit is € 799. If you don’t fancy doing it yourself, Ed’s Gartenbahn does it for you for € 999 (donor loco not included). More info & contact details: Ed’s Gartenbahn
