Vintage Schuco Varianto 3041 Limo Red Made in US Zone Germany

Vintage Schuco Varianto Limo 3041 Made in US Zone Germany.

Marked as "Made in U.S. Zone Germany", it can be easily determined as made between 1951, the start of the production and 1964.

It is a Limo in red livery. I am not entirely sure about the paint; it could be the original paint that is crazing or it could be have been repainted at some point in the past.

However, it looks like it was never opened so it could very well be the original paint but let's assume it's repainted to avoid disillusions.

The mechanics function well but it could do with a little cleaning and oiling.

Vintage Schuco Varianto 3010/15 Shunting Platform.

Although it is unknown what the production span of this "platform" was exactly, these were made before 1964 as they are marked "Made in U.S.-Zone Germany".

Most probably made between 1954 and 1964.

These plastic tracks were used to, amongst others, create loops in a Varianto track (similar to the drawing below, taken from a vintage Varianto catalog).

We have a number of these platforms available, all in mint condition.

A great addition to any Schuco Varianto collection!

Made between 1954 and 1964.

The tunnel fits onto the Varianto wires and the cars can drive through it without any problems.

The tunnel is in very good condition with only some very minor surface rust in the inner seems keeping it from being totally mint.

It has no paint chips or dents.

Vintage Schuco Varianto 3010/38 Straight Track.

Although it is unknown what the production span of the track was exactly, these were made before 1964 as they are marked "Made in U.S.-Zone Germany".

It was made between 1954 and 1964.

These pressed metal tracks were used for "fixed" pieces of the complete Varianto lay-out, effectively creating "two-lane traffic".

We have a number of these tracks available, all in good but not totally mint condition.

We would call the condition "Very Good".

A great addition to any Schuco Varianto collection!
