Merkur 0 Gauge

(Czech Republic)

Merkur (Mercury, in English) are a Czech company, who began producing construction sets, similar to Meccano, in the early 1920s, and continue to this day, although production ceased during WWII, and the company was nationalised in 1953. Merkur was privatised in 1989, following the end of the Communist era, but was insolvent by 1993. Merkur was then purchased by Jaromír Kríž, and toy production continues.

0 gauge railways, originally nut and bolt construction, were added to the range around 1930, and production continues today, with a comprehensive range of metal built locos, wagons and coaches, as well as track, buildings and accessories.
