Robilt was created by Ron Titchener in Melbourne in 1946, after war service with the RAAF. Initial Robilt products were sheet brass, later switching to tinplate. Robilt used three styles if coupling during production, the earliest being traditional drop link, followed by a 'hooded' coupling of their own design and finally the 'Hornby style auto coupling.

Robilt produced more than just toy trains, producing machinery for the jewellery trade and, later, the automotive industry.
