Some Gauge 1 projects will not be available in 2021 despite long-standing announcements. Instead, other models are coming unexpectedly - and a flood of new announcements. "It is dangerous to lean out" takes on a whole new meaning here. The current project list has 195 items.

The Gauge 1 project list from the end of January 2021 gives a preview of freshly announced new products, some of which are seven years old and are about to be delivered at last. The number is frighteningly high, but completely unrealistic.

Newcomers to gauge 1 should study the project list in detail.

There is something stuck in the planned deliveries of gauge 1 models. The current status.

by Friedhelm Weidelich

Numerous gauge 1 projects that were due by the end of the year were more or less silently postponed to 2021. Many a customer will go empty-headed (German phrase: to look at the moon).

Take one! The plastic box, which will be empty at the end of the 2019 season on a pier on the Baltic Sea, ironically symbolizes a part of the gauge 1 market: Order something, we can deliver almost nothing anyway!

Now it's time to bet on the Zero.

Despite tha: the updated list of gauge 1 projects promises more deliveries for 2020 - and some more new projects.

The first half of 2020 is nearing its end. Failed trade fairs and obstructions caused by Corona and an insolvency have not had a major impact on the industry. But if you take a closer look at the gauge 1 project list, you will discover shifts in the market. Because some can deliver, others cannot.

In 2020 the project list is shorter, but countless projects are to be delivered this year. Will that work?
