The first Fobbi range included only one diesel loco BB67007, some shortened Corail coaches and some goods wagons. It was extended gradually, until it became a serious competitor for Jouef, in particular the TGV, which managed to rack up a large number of sales.

|The BB67007 was similar to Jouef's old BB67001|
|The BB22000 model had poor detail and a plastic pantograph|
|The BB15000 minus pantograph|
The irony of all this was that in 1985 when the CEJI group went under, Jouef were saved by Jacques Barret. The rescue plan, which returned all the production equipment to the Champagnole site, lead to the creation of a new company 'Jouef Industries'.
Here are a selection of goods wagons

The toy-like models which Fobbi produced in the early 1980's used the same bogie for all the models e.g. BB67007, BB22000, BB20011, BB15000 and even the TGV. There was no extra detail on the roofs, only one plastic pantograph and no lights. The models had one motor fixed on the bogie with a ballast weight .
Some train sets were also produced.
