Electric Train Systems (ETS) of Czechoslovakia was set up by Mr Gustav Taus, who still runs the company, and Mr Ludvik Losos, in 1991. Based in Prague, in what is now the Czech Republic, ETS manufacture 0 gauge tinplate trains, scale 1:45, for British, US and European markets in both two and three rail, AC and DC configurations, with or without electronic sound systems, with various styles of couplings (couplers) being available including US knuckle, UK Hornby drop link and German Marklin.

ETS have also manufactured for others including the early Marklin Maxi gauge 1 series, Ace Trains of London, Bassett Lowke and various commissions for UK dealers.
