THE HISTORY OF DORFAN TRAINS

Julius and Milton Forchimer work for their cousin in Nurnberg Germany untin 1923. The company was Joseph Kraus & C0. They made toy trains named Fandor after Milton's and Julius's mothers, Fanny and Dora. In 1924 they moved to the US and started their own toy company. They reversed the name and called it Dorfan. They made toy trains starting in 1924 but the company could not survive the depression and ended in 1933. Trains were produced in both wide gauge and a narrow gauge equal to "O" gauge. The locomotive bodies were cast with Zinc-alloy which had not been perfected at that time. Most of the castings have crumbled with the passing of 80 years. Few of the locomotives are intact today and it is rare to find one that still runs.

MORE OF MY DORFANS


This is my #600 gondola. It was made between 1926 and 1930. It is currently missing a ladder and a coupler but I will find parts to fix it. If you have parts for sale please E-mail me.
 
This one is my # 603 boxcar. It was made between 1926 and 1930 also. This one is missing a brake wheel.

I'm not sure what number this yellow boxcar is. Any ideas?

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!

  8. I like to all a touch of colour when taking care of Christmas card "envelopes".
    Is it tough to add a little "clip art" sweet cane
    or Christmas Bells or Minature Christmas plant when
    using labels? Think I will certainly start utilizing labels this year.

    Thanks!
    Ellen.
