Overview of the Eras

Anyone serious about the hobby will find on this page an overview of the time periods and emblems for historic and current European railroads. The eras have been divided up according to NEM standards, but the dividing line for later eras is not exactly sharp. Also, the features of different eras can overlap in the prototype.

The pictograms defined for the eras can also be found by the models so that you can assemble prototypical trains from a respective era. A search in our product database will also support you here when you enter the era as a search criterion.
