Deutsche Bahn and other railroad companies are not the only ones looking for engineers. Ern Hettinger also seeks those with a clear profile: applicants should enjoy the airy, authentic railroad experience. A willingness to work in an open cab at any time of day or night, summer or winter, is a prerequisite. We run in 1:32 scale in ANY weather!

Scanning old negatives is time-consuming and puzzling. But a special train in Singen in 1975 could be dated. A few days later, an unusual work train passed by that could almost be recreated on 1 gauge.

by

A review and 46 large format photos show the strengths and small shortcomings of the Koef II, first batch, from Steiner Modellwerke. A gauge 1 model that is a joy to look at and also well suited for shunting dioramas.

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

The Gauge 1 pioneer Bockholt has ceased production at the end of March 2022. That's what it says on the homepage since a few days.

by

Locomotives made up only a small part of the exhibits at InnoTrans 2022. But there were spectacular engines among them that would also be eye-catchers in Gauge 1 scale.

by

The model has already been announced, now the hand sample is available: the MaK 600 D from Spur1-Exklusiv is nearing completion.

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

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

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

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

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 320 001 of the track construction company Wiebe hummed quietly on the Märklin gauge 1 roller bench.
