Metalma

(Brazil)

The production of Metalma trains began in the 1930s, and continued until 1967. Metalma produced a clockwork 0 gauge set comprising loco, tender and two Pullman coaches, with a 36 inch diameter circle of track. Lithographed tin accessories including a station, signal and tunnel were added to the range. The loco was in streamlined style, although had the traditional Brazilian pilot (cow catcher) as part of the front decoration. Initial sets were green, then silver and finally red.

Metalma also produced an 0 gauge battery powered diesel freight set, comprising loco and goods or freight wagons, again with a cirle of track.

The sets were manufactured by Metallurgical Matarazzo SA, which became Metalma, believed to be one of only two Brazilian 0 gauge toy train manufacturers, the other being Erka.
