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.

Brick and half-timbering, a small footprint and a touch of romance: Horst Göhr builds a small train station in the Altmark region of northern Saxony-Anhalt that unfortunately lost its function 21 years ago.

Angular modern locomotives have their own appeal. The hand sample of the Gravita 10 BB from Spur 1 Austria could reinforce the trend towards 1/32 scale models of currently operating locomotives. 50 photos showing all the details.

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.

There is no shortage of interesting trains in the east of Hanover even on Sundays, where the freight bypass and the main lines to the east and north meet. The most interesting train from RailAdventure came after sunset. 36 photos, some of them spectacular, with trains and traction units of all kinds.

by

Like the DB class 111, the class 1812 is a timelessly beautiful locomotive. MBW has now announced that it will deliver the multi-system locomotive for the 50th anniversary in 2024. It will be able to handle international trains.

Where I took pictures 55 years ago, I still make photos today. Photos from there and on the road.

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

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.

Besides the class 182 of Deutsche Bahn, there are other electric locomotives that resemble the Austrian Taurus. An addition.

Some would call it backwoods transportation...

by

News agencies, TV stations and newspapers are reporting today what Deutsche Telekom and Deutsche Bahn have published as a press release: "By 2026 at the latest, there should no longer be any gaps in coverage along rail lines in long-distance and regional transport." This refers to mobile communications coverage on trains, which network operators and Deutsche Bahn have been working on since 2008 with little success. 16 years of moderated (not only transport policy) standstill in Germany thanks to the Merkel governments have turned one of the most important industrialized countries into a snail-like dawdler that foreign countries can only laugh at.

There is news for subscribers.

by

Yesterday, Deutsche Bahn announced an ICE order with Siemens. Because the press material said so, the journalists rushed at the radio-permeable windows and the bicycle compartments. But because an ICE 3 is not an ICE 3, hardly any media report was correct or was decorated with false pictures.

by

Unusual, weird designs of locomotives, cars and multiple units are popular with model railroaders. Soon there will be a new darling of the public.

by

Gauge 1 usually suffers from too long vehicles and too short tracks. But you can, strictly following the example of the DB Regio, extend the journey time with a trick. German TV satirical program Extra3 showed the method again yesterday.

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

Modern locomotives need modern freight cars. MBJ Modellbau Jaegers has new colorful models under construction. Especially impressive is the detailed, 810 mm long carrier for 80 ft containers.
