Since its 1966 introduction by Egger-Bahn (the well-known 9mm toy train company) in Germany, the Lectron System continues to be considered a unique and highly inventive way of teaching analog and digital electronics. From Egger-Bahn’s English translation of their 1966-1967 catalog:
The Lectron System was in fact available for purchase in the Fall of 1966. For a more complete discussion, please visit the following Forum topic – What is the Lectron System?
Despite many ‘authorities’ attributing the Lectron System’s invention to others, Georg Franz Greger, Dipl.-Ing, was the true inventor and he proudly displays his creation for a publicity still taken on 1966-OCT-20.
Patented on 1965-MAY-08, the Lectron System was introduced by Egger-Bahn at the 1966 Spielwarenmesse (Toy Fair) held during that February. The Lectron System was hailed as a major achievement in teaching electronics.
The Lectron System was one of the leading exhibits at the 1967 Spielwarenmesse and numerous prominent Bavarian politicians stopped by the exhibit to receive a demonstration.
