Welcome to the website of Ed’s Garten Bahn


Why Ed’s Garten Bahn?

Since 2012 we from Ed’s Garten Bahn produce small series of models in scale 1:22.5. We are unique with this in several ways: we use modern techniques like 3D printing and our business model offers us the possibility to produces models again and again at the same price. Besides that we offer a large freedom in choosing numbers, colours and components. The only thing we ask you is to give us the time to produce the model. We don’t have stock, every model is built especially for you. So no limited series, you don’t have to rush in deciding before a model is sold out. Ed’s Garten Bahn is, although the name suggests otherwise, based in the Netherlands.

Adequate technical knowledge is required to achieve high-quality models. Our many years of experience with modelbuilding has ensured that this knowledge is abundantly available. Use of only the best materials is also required. We do not make any concessions on this. Wheel rims are always made of stainless steel, axles always turn in ball bearings and the paints used are of industrial quality. The combination with our love for model making means that our models are of excellent quality with a high level of detail. And of course be provided with as many fun and distinctive gadgets as possible!

Have you been wishing to own a specific train in model for years, but is there not a single producer that releases this model? Contact us to see with us whether your model is feasible!

A short video with some of our products can be seen here.

FAUR L45H added to our list of models

After it became known that we are developing a FAUR L45H as a customer request, we have received enough questions to include this model in our standard file. This model can therefore be ordered from now on. For specific versions, please contact us. The model has (in addition to all standard features that every loco of ours has) a smoke generator and of course a sound decoder. The price is currently fixed (until July 1) at € 2,099.

Here you can read more.


New in 2023

For this year we are planning an ÖBB locomotive as a new model, namely the 1099. A series developed for the Mariazeller Bahn, with originally 16 locomotives in total. A number of locos are still drivable.
As usual, this model is built in 1:22.5, in which many details are taken over. Of course a digital sound decoder will be built in and the pantograph will be operable. Further details are currently being worked out, as is the price. The locomotive will be available in red-beige, bloodorange-beige, Valousek, brown and brown/golden. Here you can read more.

New wish model

Some time ago we received another request for a desired model: the Faur L45H. A loco known to many. In the meantime, the development has been completed and the first parts are on order.

10 years Ed’s Garten Bahn

On 12-12-2012 Ed’s Garten Bahn was registered with the Chamber of Commerce. It will be 10 years next week. In 10 years we have been able to release an impressive range of 25 different models in a considerable number of variants in terms of company and color. And due to the production method used, not a single product has been sold out or parts have not been available.
We have only been able to achieve this with the support of our customers. And for that we are grateful. And we want to continue with that. Even in these times when prices are rising rapidly due to unprecedented events in the world, we want to continue to produce models that other manufacturers do not see any benefit in because large numbers will never be realized. Models that guarantee variety in your collection, so that your hobby continues to give pleasure. Models that make your collection different from the collection of your fellow hobbyists. Unique, personal and your own.
We thank you for the support over the past 10 years and we hope that your support continues. So that the variation in your own world remains.

PLEASE NOTE: Price increase as of November 1, 2022

We also cannot avoid announcing a price increase. The purchase prices of materials and parts have risen so enormously in recent months that this is unavoidable. A few examples:
3D printed parts: +20%
Decoders and electronics: +18% (if available at all)
Pantographs (Kohlen): +33%
In addition, housing and energy costs have also increased.

The price increase will take effect on November 1, 2022. You can find the new price list here.

Pricing in 2022

Traditionally, we publish the new prices for the coming year in November. We are now doing that again. Unfortunately, after an increase in prices in 2020, it is not better in 2021. The prices of raw materials such as acrylic sheet have risen enormously (sometimes up to 60%) and this is unfortunately reflected in the new prices. We were able to limit the damage to an average of 2%. The new price list will come into effect on January 1, 2021.

The pricelist for 2022 can be found here.



We presented the prototype of the Fahrbar during the Tag der Offenen Tür. This carriage (former Postwagon Z 86, then WR-S 3820 Calanda Barwagon and now WR-S 3823 FahrBAR) is being restored by a group of enthusiastic young people and transformed into a modern mobile bar. By purchasing this model, you support the project because CHF 100 from every model sold goes directly to the association fund of the project. More information: Projekt FahrBAR.

Prijzen voor 2021

Traditionally, we will publish the new prices for the coming year in November. We do that again now. 2020 has unfortunately not been friendly. Materials procurement prices have risen significantly across the board. This also increases final prices, but efficiency improvements allow us to limit the increase to an average of 3.3%. The new price list will take effect on January 1, 2021.

For a customer we have realized two models of the General Electric Series 95 of the Ferrocarriles Argentinos. For years it was a dream for the customer to own this train in model. The original drove between Mendoza (Argentina) and Santa Rosa de los Andes (Chile), where the Andes mountains had to be conquered. The difference in height was 2,409 meters, which was overcome with a System Abt cogwheel system.

New 2020!

This year we want to release the following new models:

More information about the various models will be posted in the coming days.

RhB Tm 2/2 111-120 with ZIMO and Däppensound

You can now order your RhB Tm 2/2 shunting tractor with a ZIMO MX699 LV decoder with a recorded Däppen Sound. This soundfile is specially designed for this model, where the sounds are precisely matched to the driving characteristics of the locomotive. Three different lighting images are possible: the well-known Swiss 3 + 1, 3 white with 2 red or 3 white at the front and 2 white at the rear, the only correct lighting for during shunting. All other known functions (rotating operator, door with servo control etc.) are of course also built in.
The price for this ZIMO decoder with Däppensound is € 200,-.

New prices 2020…

Traditionally we will publish the new prices for the coming year around 1 November. We do that again now. Despite rising prices for, among other things, purchasing, prices for the coming year have risen marginally. With most models we stay below 1%. The new price list starts on January 1.

The prices for AutoMobilia remain the same for the time being, despite the expansion of functionality.

The new pricelist can be found here.

Test WP&Y Shovelnose in the Gartenbahn Profi

The GartenBahn Profi magazine has viewed, held and measured our prototype inside and out. The results are in an article that you can download here.

We would like to say something about some of the comments made. 10 of these locomotives were originally delivered and have undergone many changes over the years. This prototype was built after the example of locomotive number 94 in the 80s. The Thunderbird on the nose was really smaller then the later one. Other details also vary from engine to engine. On the site of Boerries Burkhardt you can see pictures of all the songs in the course of time

And as you are used to with us: if you order this model you will get the version you want. With oval chimney or straight chimney, numbers under the upper headlight or not. All details are included.

Also in the CERES model.

One is nice, two is even nicer…

You can also order the model of this locomotive in F-scale: 1: 20.3. More information via the contact form.

Summerrelease: White Pass & Yukon Railroad GE 90 Shovelnose

As a new model for this summer, we are proud to announce our first American / Canadian model of the General Electric series 90 diesel locomotive. Of this model, 11 were built for the White Pass & Yukon Railroad. They have been delivered since 1954 and have driven around in 3 different color schemes. In recent years a number of loks have been completely restored and are used daily to show the scenic railroad of the White Pass & Yukon from Skagway to cruise travelers.
The models can be ordered in all color schemes and in the appearance of the restored locomotives. You can also choose the number of your choice. You can order the models as analog (also for RC users) or digital (with sound). And to complete the set, we also offer a dummy (no motors or electronics).

More information can be found here.

Rework RhB ABe 4/4 III

In recent weeks, the model of the RhB ABe 4/4 III 51-56 (Bernina Triebwagen) has been reworked. The detailing at the bottom of the model has been further improved, the cabs on the inside and outside have been given even more details and an electronic route table has been developed for the latest version (instead of the servo-operated course board). The tinted windows have also been added. Furthermore, a huge number of changes have been made that are not visible but that improve production and increase the simplicity of service. Despite these many improvements, the price remains the same. You can read more about the RhB ABe 4/4 III here.

(Actual size 24 x 7 mm)

Pricechange: RhB Ge 3/3 214-215

The pice for the RhB Ge 3/3 214-215 has changed. Starting today this model is only available with an ESU LokSound XL V5-decoder for a price of € 1.799,-.

New: FO BCm 2/2 21-22, RhB CFm 2/2 150

This year we are introducing a model of the FO BCm 2/2 21-22, later RhB CFm 2/2 150. These Benzintriebwagens started their life in 1927 with the FO, having a 2nd and 3rd class. They were powered by an 8 cilinder boxerengine that propelled the 2 axles via a gearbox. One axle had a cog wheel. Number 21 was used after 1947 as a service vehicle. It was transferred to the Luzern Verkehrshaus in 1965. Since 2008 it is part of the collection of the DFB, where a restauration is done in depot Aarau. Number 22 was sold to the RhB in 1947. It was changed into a 3rd class with luggage department (Cf) and it drove around in Prättigau as RhB Cf 2/2 150. Later it became Bf 2/2 150. In 1959 it was taken out of service. The Carriage was used as a Pathfinders housing until 1976.

The model will be built using a mix of 3D printed parts, lasered parts and a steel frame. Ofcourse a Bühlermotor will be used. Also a cog wheel will be provided. Pricing is not yet known.

Starting today: ESU LokSound V5

Starting today, all models ordered with sound will be delivered with an ESU LokSound V5. This new generation of decoders is a step in the future. The sound quality has been improved, there are more outputs for functions, more options for servos (up to 6) and many more for functions.

New: first pictures of the RhB Ge 3/3

We our proud to present the first pictures of our latest model: the RhB Ge 3/3 shunting locomotive. As usual, this model comes with stainless steel wheel rims, axles with ball bearings, a strong Bühler motor, turing driver, servo controlled pantograph, servo controlled door, LED lighting with various possibilities, prepared for Massoth decouplers (including the shunting program).

More pictures can be seen here.

When you order this loco in December, you get the Sounddecoder as a present from us!

Prices in 2019

Last year pricing for many purchase parts raised. As an example we would like to mention wheel rims (up 12%) and Bühler motors (up 11%). Also 3D Printing became more expensive.
Because of these raises we have to raise some of our prices as well. The maximum raise on selected models is 5% (€ 50,-). The average raise of the total pricelist is 0,95 %. Models that were annouced this year did not increase in price (RhB Ge 3/3 214-215, RhB Ge 4/4 181, RhB Ge 4/4 182, MOB ABDe 8/8).

The new prices are valid starting 1-1-2019, so we’re offering you the possibility to order at the current prices.

The new pricelist can be downloaded here.

MOB ABDe 8/8 also available in a shorter version

Our models are always built in true-to-scale (1:22,5). This means that our carriages are 80 cm long in stead of 68 cm, which is the standard for other suppliers of Swiss models. Because many customers build their garden layout based on these shorter models, there can be problems with our true-to-scale models. In the (often too tight) kurves is the overhead caternary or a tunnelentrance in the way.
To accomodate these customers we offer some of our trains in a shorter scale (RhB Be 4/4 Vorortpendel, RhB ABe 4/4 Fliegende Rhätier, FO BDeh 2/4 Triebwagen).
Starting today the model of the MOB ABDe 8/8 can also be ordered in this shorter scale. A complete train has a lenght of 1356 mm (original 1464 mm). There are no differences between materials and looks of these models.

For more information please contact us via info(at)edgb.nl or the contactform.

First announcement for a new model in 2018!

The first new model for 2018 that we would like to introduce to you is the model of the RhB Ge 4/4 181. This locomotive originally started its life at the Bernina Bahn as a locomotive with 6 axles (6/6), but due to several problems with the driving rods it was chaged into a 4/4 in 1929. In 1970 the loco was put aside and transferred to the Train Museum of Blonay-Chamby, were it was regularly used until 1990. It then became part of the static fleet. This year BC is organizing a big Bernina Festival and the loco will be driving again.
The model is 610 mm long and has several functions. These can be found here.

Ed’s Garten Bahn celebrates 5 years

On 12-12-2012 Ed’s Garten Bahn was enlisted in the Chamber of Commerce. So we are celebrating 5 years! During these 5 years we’ve accomplished a lot: many models, AutoMobilia. And we were part in fulfilling the dream of many customers. Either with one of our models, but also with specific parts, custom built bogies etc. All the talks we had shared the passion for our fantastic hobby: large scale railroading. The unique possibilities of 3D printing made it possible to build small series. We saw the advantages already 5 years ago. And we will continue this for the following years.

Test of the Tm 2/2 in Gartenbahn Profi


Gartenbahn Profi performed a test on the Model of the RhB Tm 2/2. This test can be downloaded here (.PDF, 3MB).
In this test some recommendations are made. These will be implemented in the design in the following days. A bigger bottom plate will be installed and the lights will be changed at the backside. Smaller SMD leds will be used so that the backside can be closed. The windows will show black frames. A sidewindow that can be opened however will not be made possible while the construction will be too weak.
