    Karl Bub founded this company in 1851 in Nüremberg, Germany. As all the other toy manufacturers in Nüremberg, Karl Bub intended his company to produce merry go-rounds, fountains, carts, horse-drawn street cars, fire engines, and other tin toys both with, and without mechanical (clockwork) drive units.
    Bub made a superbly enameled and later lithographed line of clockwork tin transportation toys including trains. They started making floor trains that ran by clockwork in 1903. Track based trains came two years later in 1905.
    After 1945, in addition to continuing 'O' gauge trains manufacture, a new production of 2 rail DC and clockwork powered trains in an 'S' like gauge (1:66 scale running on 24 mm track) with tubular track was created. These trains were made of tinplate. The electric locomotives featured open frame 18V DC motors.
