BRIO started introducing its wooden toy train system with wooden tracks in Europe in 1958.

It may have been the first company to use the "peg and hole" system to connect the pieces in mass production that all companies used. The peg system has been replaced by magnetic connectors. BRIO may have been the first company to use beechwood for this product.

Did Brio ever make and sell a train whistle with the Brio logo on it?
I found a wooden Brio train whistle with a picture of a locomotive with a wagon on it. The wagon carries the text 'BRIO'. It was priced at 20 USD, but I think that's a bit too much.
