Company Profile: KleiWe

History in a Nutshell

Very little is known about this obscure, short-lived company. Around 1965, Arnold von Blattmann of Emmendingen, Germany, began to manufacture a series of N Scale structure kits under the brand name KleiWe; then in 1971, Arnold purchased the line from Blattmann, so the story would only seem to span six years.

N Scale Products

KleiWe was imported into the US by DimiNutive Trains, Nathan R. Preston and others. All of their kits were N Scale, and they've become something of a collector's item, fetching as much as $50 each.
