The Gauge 1 novelty merry-go-round continues to spin at high speed.

The Saxon Narrow Gauge Railway Museum in Breitenbrunn-Rittersgrün in the Ore Mountains, Germany, is well worth a visit.

In the third and last part of the report about the Fichtelbergbahn of the Sächsische Dampfeisenbahngesellschaft (SDG), we once again meet steam trains on the way and look at the Hüttenbach Viaduct and the terminus Kurort Oberwiesenthal, which has a nostalgic automat. Two videos complement my photos.

In the second part we look again at the station Cranzahl, other small stations at the narrow gauge railway and accompany trains with the camera.

The Fichtelbergbahn Cranzahl - Kurort Oberwiesenthal in Saxony overcomes a difference in altitude of 240 meters (789 ft) on a route of 17.4 km (10.8 m) in the Ore Mountains. With steam, of course. We went along for the ride.

Some nice details were found on the modules in Annaberg-Buchholz. 22 photos in the fifth part of the report.

The Oschersleben depot and some DR locomotives are the subject of the 38 photos from the gauge 1 days in Annaberg-Buchholz.

Now it's off to Schlettau and Klütz on the modular gauge 1 layout in Annaberg-Buchholz.

In the second part about the gauge 1 operating days in Annaberg-Buchholz, we go to a railroad depot and a large diesel filling station.

After numerous heavyweights, there is finally a compact vehicle on the market for Gauge 1 that is suitable for shunting in tight spaces.

The Ore Mountains (Erzgebirge) in Saxony, Germany, offer a lot of variety in terms of railroad technology in a very small area. Ore Mountains stations and lines were the theme on the approximately 120 modules of the fourth Annaberg-Buchholz Gauge 1 operating days initiated by jübe-modelle. The self-builts, together with the DR vehicles, looked authentic and the operation remained relaxed. Part 1 with 51 photos in large format.

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.

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.

66 excellent large format photos show the qualities of the 08 1001 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, which Märklin produced for gauge 1. The review is about differences to the 241.A.65 and little things that are not so well done. The model should delight collectors who were not previously interested in Reichsbahn vehicles.

by Friedhelm Weidelich

The photos of the 08 1001 of the DR from Märklin are for the most part already done. A foretaste of the impressive exotic steam locomotive that you might want to have in your gauge 1 collection after seeing these pictures.

A refined 3D print was the basis for the Reichsbahn maintenance car from Oberdittmansdorf in Saxony.

Horst Göhr has built the former station building of Spechtritz on the Saxonian Weißeritz valley railway in 1:32 scale - another masterpiece.

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

Spur 1 Austria has received a hand sample of the DR 5280 and had photos taken. Seven large format images.

by Friedhelm Weidelich

It had to come in 1:32 scale at some point: the 08 1001 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn. The French-based coal dust test locomotive will not be long in coming to Märklin.

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

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

Steiner Modellwerke is putting out another variant of the Köf II.

by Friedhelm Weidelich

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

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.

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

Besides the 07 1001 of the DR from Proform there is also a 07 1001 as a live steam model. It is operating in Switzerland.

by Friedhelm Weidelich

07 1001 clearly shows the French provenance. Proform built the gauge 1 model to order.

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