Carlisle and Finch

(Cicinnati, Ohio, USA)

Carlisle

This page does not really belong here, as Carlisle and Finch did not produce 0 gauge trains. The first 0 gauge trains were produced by Ives in 1910, followed by Lionel in 1915 and American Flyer, 1918.

Carlisle and Finch, of Cincinnati, OH, USA, first produced toy trains in 1896, and continued to do so until World War I (1915), at which time they switched to searchlight production, for the US Navy. Toy train production was not resumed after the war, the company continuing with the more profitable searchlight business which continues to this day.
