Wonderful, thanks for sharing. I did not know that such a place existed.
What an astounding collection.
Wow! Any idea what kind of alarm system they have installed?
I want to go to Mecca
I my Bing stuff!
But I noticed their dates were off.
Green tile pattern on bases begins in 1917 and ends about 1927. I think they were immediately followed by the brown/beige pattern bases which were followed by blues.
I have found the issue over the GBN and BW markings difficult.
The firm logo was changed in 1917 but they kept the GBN mark at least partially until about 1925 but there are also engines marked BW Bavaria which thus must be made before 1921.
No steam toy manufacturor has kept production records
Thank you Erwin for posting this amazing video.I have always been amazed by the sheer scale of the Bing manufacturing operation.
Mile High Steamer
mmmm! all those beautiful engines but I say that they need a good live steam run you see them know what the are and know that they should do what they were ment to do be played with but carefully they are rather old and certenly mmmm!! the only bing I have is a 1920s line shaft from ebay MHS.
