Not comon pieces to find. I just have three Biaggi freight cars. Sorry for the quality of pictures i will do better ones later. Biaggi trains are very nice but tends to suffer of zamack problems very often which makes that many of their locos have been destroyed. Production was also very low, not industrial.

Wow thank you for posting the photos and educating us as to what is out there ..even if in very small numbers ..

I like your quote about the Italians like to keep them .... in a huge global world   there is still national pride about letting a home piece cross the borders

An Italian Challenger !!!    did they produce other American  models ? ...  has the look of a Marklin NYC  Hudson 

Thank you Cheers Carey

 

To my knowledge Biaggi has done some other american models, a Commodore Van der Bilt and a Hudson. With the challenger they heve been produced in very small batches for wealthy customers. Biaggi produced trains in the spirit of Marklin, and they look very similar. Some models are of very high quality and some others have more the look of toys.

He also produced models in one gauge; i have had in my hands a german Pacific from pre world war two, that was a beauty.

I have some more pictures of the french 242 loco, you can appreciate the wormanship on it. And also a small italian swicher from an auction house in France.

Thank you for posting the additional photos .  So Biaggi produced their own line of trains in addition to reproductions of some of the Marklin line ?

Here is a link to a few of the Biaggi  pieces that have sold over the years .

Cheers Carey

Thank you for the links Carey, that is all that is known about Biaggi.

Biaggi produced his own line of trains and Marklin repro also.  It seems today that you can find some models in Germany and Switzerland, but always expensives; as fred said in Italy it is near impossible to buy something from Biaggi......

Very best,  Daniel

I don't know but  it was not a mass production and they look more hand made models than industrial products, i fouded some pictures of a "spanish" passenger train from the 40's of manamo.$_57 [3)

I like that wooden passenger car. It reminds me of the Occre Gauge 1 kit. Same prototype I wonder?

This is a popular prototype in Spain; the MZA railway had this type of wooden coaches; I have also one made in H0 gauge by the Spanish company Electrotren:
