Not everyone has the space to document an entire station area in 1:32 scale. In narrow gauge, the stations are naturally smaller. Therefore, a masterpiece was created with the three structures of Ochsenhausen, which spur1info has the chance to show with 44 photos.

by

50 photos and a review of Wunder's distinctive Bundesbahn KKks and Tae(m)s 890 swing roof cars for Gauge 1.

by

The command car for push-pull trains is a hand sample from Kiss Modellbahnen with an interesting interior. 28 pictures showing all the details you haven't seen before.

by

The outdoor grounds of the DB Museum in Nuremberg are home to some rarities. But the mechanical signal boxes are not to be sneezed at either.

by

A visit to Nuremberg is worthwhile, because the city has a lot to offer. The main attraction for railroad fans should be the DB Museum, for which you should take plenty of time.

by

Steiner Modellwerke has added Bavarian whistle and bell signs to its program.

by

Märklin's fall novelties for Gauge 1 are big and heavy. In addition to the green Köfferli, there is also a German electric locomotive that is still in use today.

by

Usually, you see very little of the interior of an electric locomotive. Wunder's 151 for gauge 1 fascinates with a detailed replica of the engine room, where the bar is set very high. Exclusive pictures that fascinate.

by

Dingler has received the G 90 freight cars and is now starting delivery.

by

Due to slow customs clearance, the two Donnerbüchsen hand samples from Fine Models arrived only today. 18 pictures of the attractive passenger cars for gauge 1.

by

The class 64, which is being realized by MBW as a gauge 1 model, was a beautiful tender locomotive. 30 photos from my archive, some of them more than 50 years old, recall long-gone Bundesbahn times and the uses of the compact steam locomotive.

by

Finally, a look at the signals and parts at tracks and vehicles from Oppermann Modellbau.

by

Wunder has now decided to produce DB's four-axle conversion cars.

by

Fine Models announces several freight train conductor cars for gauge 1 for 2023.

by

Small locomotives are found far too seldom for Gauge 1. MBW will soon be delivering the DRG, DR and DB class 80 shunting locomotive. The attractive steam locomotive model is suitable for shunting in passenger and freight stations as well as in industrial operations. On a diorama, the tender locomotive could serve sidings.

A review with 48 photos.

Wunder will shortly be introducing a new freight car for 1 gauge. It is a swing roof car.

by

As the first version, Fine Models has just delivered the gauge 1 model of the E 71 13 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. 57 large format photos show all the details of the Prussian electric locomotive classic. The review describes the strengths and shortcomings of Fine Models' model - and clarifies the question of whether the competitor's locomotive is better.

by

Fine Models is currently delivering the E 71 13 and the blue E 71 19 of the DB. First photos.

by

And once again there is a novelty for the gauge 1 to announce!

by

Wunder will announce a new locomotive model for gauge 1 in the next days. spur1info already has the details.

by

Railroad cranes may be among the least known rail vehicles. This subject, reserved for specialists, has rarely been covered in magazines and books. Udo Kandler has rolled up the history of German rail cranes in his book published by EK-Verlag and compiled spectacular pictures.

by

Self-built buildings for gauge 1 are unique models with charm. Unfortunately, the popular model of the brick and half-timbered signal box no longer exists - and it had a different name.

by

With nice steadiness, Dingler announces new models in June and is able to show hand samples exactly one year later - usually this weekend in Sinsheim. Because the Spur-1-Treffen had to be cancelled again due to Corona, spur1info shows the photos of the picture-perfect cars.

by

Thirty years ago, on June 2, 1991, the ICE train service of the Deutsche Bundesbahn or Deutsche Bahn AG started with high-speed trains of class 401. Information and a large picture gallery with views from outside and inside.

by

After the announcement of the class 24 by MBW, it was obvious that the class 64 will also come as a gauge 1 model.

by

Only a small double-digit number of customers receive the small series model of the Bavarian cogwheel locomotive PtzL 3/4 or the later class 971 from Fine Models these days. The highly complex handbuilt model is even more enjoyable if you take your time during commissioning. A comprehensive article about the first-class model with practical tips for running in.

The compact Prussian locomotive as a gauge 1 model from MBW is a joy to look at. A review of the late DB version from Bw Hannover-Linden with 82 photos showing every detail.

by

The epoch IV version of the 232 001 from Märklin differs from the V 320 001 of epoch III. Some photos.

by

Fine Models expands the Bavarian freight car program presented a few days ago with two models for early epoch III.

by

Die 97 101 der DB im Zustand von 1962 von Fine Models ist die zweite Variante, die hier in 36 Fotos vorgestellt wird. Sie unterscheidet sich in vielen Punkten von dem zuvor gezeigten Länderbahn-Modell.

by

It took Spur 1 Austria almost exactly one year from the (second) announcement of the E 71 to delivery. The compact electric locomotive is presentable and inventive. 80 large format photos show all facets and the qualities of this Prussian locomotive model, whose prototype was last in service with the Deutsche Bundesbahn in South Baden.

by

The E 71 from Spur 1 Austria is well done. A little preview.

by

Fine Models is preparing a second Bavarian car series. The first model is already fixed.

In 1970, snow was still a regular occurrence in February, and winter was not a reason for the Deutsche Bundesbahn to stop traffic as a precaution. Some photos.

by

Fine Models will announce several versions of Henschel's six-axle snow blower soon.

by

There is news for subscribers.

by

MBW offers the 0310 also for gauge 1 after the gauge zero model.

by

Older gauge 1 models did not always have such a high level of detail as today. That can be altered: Bernhard Lindlbauer describes how to breathe a little more life into a 25-year-old model from Fine Art Models.

by

The class ET 85 electric railcar from Wunder for gauge 1 is still to come. However, the EB 85 sidecar to reinforce the train consisting of powered rail car and cab control car is already available.

by

spur1info shows 59 photos of the two handbuilt samples of the Prussian T 3 in Prussian state railroad version and as a Bundesbahn locomotive, which might make you go weak. Because the three-axle cult tender locomotive is just too sweet! A detailed report describes the equipment of the gauge 1 model.

by

All aboard please! Here come another 32 photos with deep looks into the extraordinarily well done gauge 1 passenger cars AB3yge and B3yge by Wunder.

by

From 1955 to 1958, three DB repair shops built a total of 653 three-axle conversion cars with baggage and service compartments. Wunder has meticulously reproduced the prototypes. The gauge 1 models are unsurpassable. 42 photos in large format show the wealth of details.

by

The three-axle conversion cars of the Deutsche Bundesbahn were coupled in pairs. If you want to couple the new gauge 1 models of the 3yge cars from Wunder close to prototype, you have to plan a little and procure suitable couplers. There are several solutions, which are presented here.

by

The Wunder gauge 1 models are being delivered these days. About 35 years ago, the DB cars were phased out. What did the passenger trains with conversion cars look like back then, what is also important in the models? 35 photos I took about 50 years ago, when the 3yg(e) cars were commonplace.

by

I received the following message from MBW, which contains more details about the price and delivery schedule of the announced models.

by

A new book sheds a lot of light on the trains of Touropa, Scharnow, Hummel & Co. A must for all buyers of the Touropa cars from Wunder.

by

After eleven days in customs, the Gauge 1 production models of the 3yg conversion cars of the Deutsche Bundesbahn have finally arrived at Wunder.

by

With original accessories, old car models can be remarketed. Märklin took this approach with the G 10 and upgraded it to a car for livestock transport. The gauge 1 model 58945 brings a few hours of handicraft fun into the house and stimulates the imagination.

by

Travel agency special trains shaped the tourism industry in the 1950s, when the own car was still an exception in Germany. Touropa was one of the most important providers of vacation trips to European destinations of longing. The hand sample of the gauge 1 model of a Touropa couchette car spreads pure nostalgia. 35 photos show all details and the surprising quality of the interior design.

by

One year after the announcement of the novelty, Wunder has received the first hand sample of the classic express train car of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. The gauge 1 model offers superlative equipment, but will not fit on every layout.

by

You don't want to repack such a heavy gauge 1 model like the V 320 from Märklin. If you need to do so, I have a suggestion on how to do it without helpers.

by

It was a pleasure to photograph the two hand samples of the ET and ES 85, in epoch IV the Deutsche Bundesbahn class 485 and 885. The models are produced for Wunder only in double-digit numbers and are not suitable for every layout. Here are the details and 53 photos that show where the journey is heading.

by

Wunder systematically works off its backlogs. Exactly five years have passed since the announcement of the ET and ES 85/485 and 885. But now Wunder has received the hand samples. And they are already in the photo studio at spur1info.

Here are photos that whet your appetite for the attractive Gauge 1 models of the vintage railcar from the Reichsbahn era.

by

A model of a diesel locomotive must offer convincing engine noise. Here's a sample of what the V 320 from Märklin sounds like.

by

Märklin's V 320 001 of the DB is a massive diesel locomotive. Spur1info was able to examine it as a pre-production sample. A gauge 1 locomotive with which market leader Märklin shows which impressive and enormously attractive models can be produced with zinc die casting. A few innovations are also included in the package.

A report with 84 photos showing every detail.

by

Märklin has provided spur1info with a pre-production model of the V 320 001 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn. The gigantic gauge 1 model is impressive not only because of its weight, but also because of the wealth of details - outside and inside.

Part 1 with 39 photos in unique quality.

by

A few months ago I introduced new figures for the early railway epochs, which were a bit cumbersome to acquire.

Now there is a much broader offer of the figure designer and a website about it.

by

Car kits for gauge 1 are rare and overstrain many model railroaders. Inspired by the requests of live steam railroaders from Switzerland, Dingler dared the experiment and published two kits of Baden cars. The baggage car offers hardly any major hurdles even for beginners - if they know a few tricks and tools. It is not a quick kit for three afterwork hours. But with a little patience and my detailed assembly instructions with 60 pictures you will successfully reach your goal.

by

Specialist dealer Beesmodellbahn has decided to develop and exclusively offer a railroad service vehicle.

by

Spur1info subscribers often have an information advantage when it comes to announcements of new products. You will be thrilled immediately.

by

Fine Models hat neue Fotos vom Handmuster der E 71 in der Bundesbahn-Version. Das Spur-1-Modell wird Holzböden in den Führerständen erhalten.

by

Spur1-Exklusiv has decided to make a special offer.

by

Kiss Modellbahnen Deutschland, a brand of Fine Models, announces a new model that hardly anyone would have expected.

by

For five years a hardly known railroad company existed in the French occupation zone in southwest Germany: SWDE.

The current EK-Special 138 describes the complicated railroad history after the end of World War II.

by

At Dingler, the kits of the Baden cars are currently being assembled on a trial basis. Here are the first pictures.

by

Many locomotives of the Deutsche Bundesbahn were used elsewhere at the end of their service at the state railway. A few V 200's came into the desert - and not each one survived. Klaus Wagner built models of these.

by

The fourth part deals with two self-built gauge 1 boxcars from the 1980s and other freight car models that were worn out in service.

by

Dingler has now described the details of his 14 variants of the two-axle Prussian passenger cars and the mail/luggage cars in greater detail. And an addendum about the Wismar railbus.

by

MBW plans to deliver an DRG/DB E 95 in 2021.

by

We continue with patinating examples of the Ziegler brothers. The pictures speak for themselves.

by

Märklin has now delivered the second pot car with item number 58725. If you can get the gauge 1 model out of the packaging without a crash, you can look forward to a little handicraft fun.

by

Fine Models has finished the last unpainted shown hand sample of the 97 101. Four photos of the gauge 1 rack locomotive, which will be available in autumn 2020.

by

Like the announcement, the production model of DB's class 81 has its premiere at spur1info. The first gauge 1 locomotive from Steiner Modellwerke is now available. The price-performance ratio is right. But what is particularly well done and what can be criticised? A review with 88 large format photos.

by

Ten professional photos of the production model of DB's 81 001, era IIIb, by Steiner Modellwerke for gauge 1. For subscribers only.

by

Freshly unpacked is the DB tender locomotive of class 81, which has just arrived from Steiner Modellwerke.

by

Hans and Walter Ziegler have taken two more freight cars for weathering.

The 1-gauge cars show the long years of service of the prototypes.

by

"Only through patination a row of cars will look like a real train," wrote Hans Ziegler and sent an article and many pictures showing how he and his brother Walter proceeded with weathering freight cars. This is because brand-new gauge 1 models appear somewhat out of place on a railway landscape that is obviously close to the original.

by

Wunder Präzisionsmodelle will produce a rather exotic cab control and baggage car for gauge 1, which had its origin in Bavaria in epoch III.

by

The hand sample of Fine Models' E 71 has been painted and lettered. Photos that make you want to own this Prussian vintage locomotive for gauge 1.

by

Wunder's makeshift baggage cars have provoked more reactions than any previous meeting - consistently positive ones. Since 1967, the models of these cars have been appearing in front of my camera time and again.

by

From 1957 the Deutsche Bundesbahn built a makeshift baggage car from two 3rd class makeshift passenger cars. Like all transitional solutions in Germany, these cars were in use for decades.

Wunder Präzisionsmodelle now delivered the long baggage cars, which were used in all types of DB trains. The gauge 1 models are well made, but need matching radii. 49 photos of all details.

by

Many electric locomotives of the former state railways and the Deutsche Reichsbahn have fallen into oblivion because they were only built in small numbers and did not always prove themselves. The German language book by Dirk Winkler recalls them with brilliant photos once again in the memory of railway enthusiasts and engineers. The text has unfortunately turned out rather joyless due to unnecessary flaws.

by

After Spur 1 Austria, Fine Models also announces an E 71. It is already almost finished. There are understandable reasons for the double development.

by

The Austrian class 93 of gauge 1 Austria is nearing completion - and the Easter Bunny brings a rustic electric locomotive.

by

Monheim was the terminus of the Bavarian local railway Fünfstetten - Monheim. Now there are the station building and the coaling station as gauge 1 models.

by

Dingler customers will not have to wait much longer for the bulk freight wagons Ktmm 65 and Ktmmv/Ud-73 of Deutsche Bundesbahn. We take a look at the hand samples. 31 photos and an animation.

by

Not a grass mat next to the gravel, but a varied vegetation makes the locomotive shed diorama for gauge 1 worth seeing. Grass and plants have "grown" quite fast. But before that I had another idea.

by

In the fifth part of the building report the plumbing work on the roof of the small locomotive shed will be completed. In addition, two realistic-looking puddles are created with the simplest of means.

by

Even an engine shed covered with tar paper in 1:32 scale should have gutters. Another challenge for the occasional handyman...

by

A diesel locomotive needs fuel from time to time. So a small filling station is integrated into the gauge 1 diorama. This also increases the play value.

by

After the positioning test and three glued-on walls, literally basic work is carried out in the engine shed. Parts of the interior fittings are also made. Inspired by imagination, a useful workshop utensil is created, which I have never seen in any model before.

by

A small chipboard, a started and a finished kit and a piece of track. This gave rise to the idea of developing a diorama that provides plenty of activity and fun even during the building stage. While doing handicrafts, it quickly became clear that once you started, the ideas develop by themselves. Perhaps also with you, dear readers.

by

The battle for market share is gradually taking on grotesque features. Now, MBW as third player announces three-axle conversion cars.

by

Fine Models has today received two hand samples of the Bavarian cogwheel steam locomotive PtzL 3/4, which are only produced in an exclusive edition of 40 pieces. Here are the first photos.

by

Did you know that the Deutsche Bundesbahn also released records? A look back into epoch III.

by

Until the 1970s, there were manually operated gantry cranes in German railway stations for reloading heavy goods from open freight cars to carriages and trucks - and vice versa. For those who don't necessarily need real action on a Gauge 1 diorama or at the loading track, Jürgen Hans offers an attractive alternative to functional models.

by

Lokladen, Bingen, Germany, offers an exclusive gauge 1 model produced by Dingler: ETA 178 001 of the Deutsche Bundesbahn.

by

Dingler has provided us with photos of the Wittfeld battery-powered railcar 1-gauge model .

by

The Christmas presents are never ending: Fine Models announces tomorrow the Bavarian rack locomotive PtzL 3/4. Here already are the details and photos of the handmade samples.

by

Until Epoch IV, the collection and transport of scrap metal was a rustic business. My photos show what it really looked like back then.

by

They are extremely rare on model railways - especially not on 1-gauge. They have also been removed in many places: safety points or trap or catch points.

by

Wunder will announce 23 new car models for gauge 1 over the next few days. Spur1info already has the details.

by

Modelle von Lokomotiven, die man selbst erlebt und fotografiert hat, sind relativ selten. Umso erfreulicher ist es, wenn von Kiss Modellbahnen eines der letzten Exemplare der Baureihe 78 als Spur-1-Modell angeboten wird. Die 078 192-2 war zuletzt im Bw Rottweil eingesetzt und fuhr von Rottweil aus Personenzüge nach Tuttlingen, Villingen und Horb – und auch den letzten nach Balingen.

Wie gut ist das Modell gelungen und stimmt es auch mit dem Vorbild überein? Fünf Vorbildfotos und über 70 Bilder des Modells erleichtern die Beurteilung.

by

Märklin's 1-gauge model of the DB class 78 entered the market at the end of December 2018 and was very successful. In a few days I will introduce the 78 from Kiss, which is now being delivered.

The review of the Märklin model is still available in the archive. To compare and because the reproduction of the 73 photos in the new system is better, I present the article about Märklin's 78 440, article number 55077, here once again.

by

At the third Sauerland gauge 0 and gauge 1 meeting, three gauge 1 layouts and dioramas were shown, which demonstrated craftmanship at the highest level. My colleague Stefan Karzaunikat from Spur-Null-Magazin provided us with photos which offer many suggestions for a realistic design of layouts and dioramas in 1:32 scale.

Op de derde Sauerländer Spur 0 und Spur 1 Großbahntreffen wurden drie systemen en diorama's getoond, die de modelbouw op het hoogste niveau demonstreerden. Mijn collega Stefan Karzaunikat van Spur-Null-Magazin heeft ons foto's geleverd die ons veel suggesties bieden voor een realistisch ontwerp van faciliteiten en diorama's in schaal 1:32.

by

Catenaries are very complicated to model. However, you should pay attention to details in a gauge 1 layout with overhead contact line that only become apparent at second glance.

by

On the way to Mulhouse in Alsace I tried to photograph some vehicles of the Dreiseebahn in Seebrugg. The collection is interesting.

At the station you will also find relics of past times.

45 photos.

by

The new Sommerfeldt overhead contact line for gauge 1 should be somewhat simplified and inexpensive. How good are the components and how do you differ from the Wunder product range?

by

A cohesive train appearance as with the prototype is a matter of nerves of steel with four-axle passenger cars on gauge 1. Even the fine motor skills of a surgeon won't get you far. But there are now practicable tools to solve these problems cleverly and to ensure an automatic connection of the cars.

by

The Bavarian two-axle car models by Fine Models, shown in raw condition in Sinsheim, are now painted and lettered.

by

In the summer of 1869, the Rottweil - Tuttlingen section of the Gäubahn went into operation. A nostalgic photographic supplement.

by

What does the new 1-gauge freight car from Wunder have that others don't? spur1info shows it vividly.

by

Deutsche Bundesbahn had only two class 66 locomotives built, a beautifully proportioned steam locomotive. The first brass model from MBW for gauge 1 brought DB's 66 001 and 66 002 convincingly to 45 mm tracks. 67 large-format photos showing the qualities of this scale model and not so well-done details.

by

My first long journey in search of interesting locomotives led in summer 1968 to Ulm and Augsburg. 17 pictures from times long past.

by

Slowly my photographic range of action is increasing in 1968. But first we take a look at passenger trains with three-axle conversion cars and at freight traffic.

1: Once again my afternoon perspective in Aldingen, about 16 o'clock. A Rottweil P 8 brings the conversion car train to Tuttlingen. The guard wears the blue-black uniform with the high hat usual at that time. The conductor in the luggage compartment gives the departure signal.

2: The turntable in Tuttlingen is defective, so the 38 3637 with closed cab rund backwards.

3: Aldingen celebrates a festivity on the sports ground. Why the 38 2039 reverses is unknown. The locomotive crew watch the hustle and bustle as they drive past.

4: In June, another V 100 comes into play. That's what locomotive drivers looked like on the V 100! The V 100 1218, built by Henschel in 1962, already bears the new "computer number" because the two German railways are introducing electronic data processing on a larger scale.

5: Again and again a Rottweil 44 pulls the conversion cars - due to circulation or because the 38s are slowly running short.

6: At the southern end of Aldingen's station, the 38 2242 takes a bend. In the background the church on the Dreifaltigkeitsberg.

7: In Ebingen (Württ) - today Albstadt-Ebingen and reduced to two tracks - a typical passenger train with auxiliary baggage car and conversion cars is waiting for the oncoming train.

8: 44 1376 reaches the end of the incline from Rottweil to Aldingen with a typical mixed freight train. The fireman has already burned the first tonne of coal on the 11 kilometers.

9: An unfortunately rare perspective from Aldingen. The freight train with sliding wall cars and many different boxcars is waiting for the passenger train. On platform 1, women and children (in knee socks) and the handcart are waiting for the next train, luggage and express goods. In the foreground are the steel wires that control switches and form signals. They come at the kilometer marker from the signal box extension from the 1930s. Since a few years the annex has been removed.

10: A short local freight train with hopper and sliding wall cars.

11: Spaichingen's Köf II no longer has a special coupler. Because the signal box in the direction of Tuttlingen was only occupied at train crossings, the shunting locomotive always arrived on track 3 with its "handover". By order of the dispatcher she then drove past the switch in the direction of Rottweil. Then the turnout was switched by wire and the shunting locomotive driver was ordered by manual signal to move to track 1. From there, further marshalling movements on the loading tracks were organized.

12: A local freight train in Tuttlingen. At that time freight trains looked like this, four-axle freight cars were still rare. Goods were often covered with tarpaulins. - The range of freight cars for gauge 1 is unfortunately quite small.

13: A refrigerator train rolls past Bernau in Bavaria. Today, refrigerated goods travel by truck.

14: Spaichingen's Köf II has now been renumbered 323 740-1. The "Deutsche Bundesbahn" lettering has not yet been replaced by the DB logo. An E 040 with scrap and a boxcar will be brought immediately to Spaichingen.

15: Freight traffic is still strong in Trossingen City, the terminal of a private shortline electrified from the beginning in 1898. The container car must have been quite new, the container still belongs to the DB. Someone painted smilies on the buffer plates. - The 1-gauge industry still strongly neglects the topic of containers, although it can be used over the epochs III to VI. These two-axle carrying wagons are still in operation.

16: 50 2970 from Bw Radolfzell reaches the end of the gradient on 24.12.1968 with her long freight train in Aldingen. For good reason there are no new locomotive numbers on the outside. Inside the cab the number 052 970-1 should have been indicated since 1.1.1968. It is one of her last trips: One week later the steam locomotive is taken out of service, on 3.3.1969 it is decommissioned. The steam locomotive era at Deutsche Bundesbahn is coming to an unstoppable end.

Märklin has reissued an old Hübner model of the Deutsche Bundesbahn V 23 stock car. The 1-gauge model is essential for epoch III.

by

At Intermodellbau 2019, MBW Spur 0 had only one gauge 1 model on display, the class 66. There's still a little delay in delivery.

by
