Unfortunately, there are not so many websites covering Lima. This was one of the reasons for me to start building up my site.  Here are some of the relevant links.


A new collectors site in Italy. Many pictures are from my own collection.


My friend Jon Biglowe´s beautiful website about Lima British H0 (1973 - 1976)


Martin Treutlers great site in German language, with detailed descriptions of many Lima Models


A French language site about Jouef, which also shows some originally Lima models in the Jouef range.


This site is about Rivarossi and covers also some items from Lima, which were eventually sold under the Rivarossi name.


     An American AHM-collerctors-site with some models produced by Lima


German Forum for old model railways, the only Forum with a big Lima-section, writing in English is o.k.

And the Forum for Austria


Italian model railway forum


My new German language website about much more than only model railways. Trains, trips and stories, have a look!
