Installations, Repairs & Restorations for Old Original LGB Trains


Welcome to TrainCraft by Klaus

What We Do

TrainCraft by Klaus was established in 2011 to continue serving the original LGB G Scale Garden Train community here in the USA. LGB trains were manufactured in Germany from 1968 to 2006 by Lehmann Patentwerke Nürnberg which became Lehmann Gross Bahn.

Klaus, your Famous Klaus, has been working with and for LGB since 1982 and is one of the last living ‘dinosaurs’ of that once famous LGB era still active in his workshop.

We focus on preserving and restoring mainly old original LGB trains to maintain and increase their collector's value.

We offer 

  •  full LGB loco restoration to Original Old German LGB standards since your "Famous Klaus" co-established those standards.
  •  We repair and install in consummate compliance with those Original old German LGB standards.
  •  We utilize original LGB parts, electric, and electronic parts to keep your LGB trains running. 
  •  We provide high-quality driving and sound decoders that fit and enhance your LGB locos. All our decoders are fully compatible with any NMRA compatible decoders you are currently utilizing in your LGB locos. Just mix and match and enjoy your LGB loco even more.
  • We offer/create summaries of distinct LGB locos, their varieties and history background in our section LGB Loco groups as well as on our blogs.
  •  We appraise and valuate your LGB trains/ collection for insurance and auction purposes.
  • We provide state-of-the-art technical service with Klaus' sophisticated workshop machinery. Klaus re-produces spare parts that are no longer available and re-manufactures parts while restoring your LGB engine

We import up to 95% of our parts, products and material from German suppliers and Märklin/LGB. We also manufacture assemble right here in the USA.
