Railroad jargon is complicated and you never stop learning. Reflections on a special form of screw coupler.

by

The last two hand samples of the third series of Bavarian freight cars from Fine Models are a high-side gondola and a boxcar, both with brakeman's cab. 36 photos in large format.

by

Bavarian state railroad cars are ideal for gauge 1 because they are short and often have unusual shapes. Fine Models has now received the hand samples of the crane wagon and other models. I have photographed them in detail.

by

Detailed relief buildings, vehicles and figures provide the narrow-gauge diorama with a background that holds many a small discovery in store.

by

You can shunt well on a long gauge 1 diorama, especially if you lay narrow-gauge track. 40 photos to stimulate your imagination.

by

Chance brought an old manuscript to light that contained a proposal for an H0 diorama. However, with a little more space you could also develop a varied diorama for gauge 1 that is suitable for all eras. Klusenstein is ideally suited as a layout area for short trains from 1912 to the present day.

by

The last report on the magnificent gauge 1 layout in U-shape is once again about the terminus station, its interior and the surrounding area. 30 images.

by

You can hardly get enough of the curve on the large U-shaped gauge 1 layout, as the hilly landscape is full of action. The longer you look, the more details become visible. Have you spotted the capercaillie behind the tender and the hunter? Even the dark forest reveals perfect model-making skills. 40 pictures in large format and a description.

by

There are always perfectly designed dioramas among gauge 1 model railroaders. But designing an entire layout down to the smallest detail takes a lot of time, a keen sense of observation, craftsmanship and the best materials. Accordingly, it is rare to find such detailed gauge 1 layouts.

The fantastic U-shaped layout, which spur1info will present in several parts with around 160 photos, is a perfect symbiosis of tracks, operating possibilities and a landscape that is very rarely found in this design quality on gauge 1 layouts. The theme of the layout is the transition from the Länderbahn era to the early Reichsbahn era.

by

It is easier to create realistic lighting for 1-gauge layouts and dioramas than for smaller model railroad scales. This is because there are hardly any oversized lamps here, especially as LED technology has also advanced miniaturization here.
The Reichsbahn-Bw already shown in the most beautiful light gains new perspectives at night.

by

A 1:32 scale railroad depot requires a certain amount of space, but offers the opportunity to set up many steam and diesel locomotives, run them on the turntable and simulate equipping and decommissioning. If you go into detail and have studied the prototypes, a steam locomotive depot is created in the model where you can almost smell the coal fire, coal, slag and steam.

I photographed a Reichsbahn depot from the early 1930s - a real highlight. 32 pictures show it in daylight.

by

I'm working on a portrait of a very detailed layout playing in epoch I and II. You will appreciate the photos soon.

by

by

Hand samples are the first attempt to put a model on wheels and are necessary to avoid errors in batch production. The Di-27 from Kiss Modellbahnen points in a good direction for the upcoming 2023 gauge 1 models.

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

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

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

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

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

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

From Bauma I received snapshots of the production sample of the Bavarian tender locomotive D XII, which will also be available as class 730-1 of the DRG.
