Dingler is delivering the Italian pointed roof wagons these days. With them, Italian farmers delivered fruit and vegetables to many European countries until about 1985. The well-done freight wagon models belong in every freight train on gauge 1. A description of the two wagon types with 54 photos for connoisseurs.

The three-axle conversion cars of the Deutsche Bundesbahn were coupled in pairs. If you want to couple the new gauge 1 models of the 3yge cars from Wunder close to prototype, you have to plan a little and procure suitable couplers. There are several solutions, which are presented here.

I received photos from Switzerland of a long train with the cars from Dingler's kits, which are still being pulled by a Bavarian locomotive for the time being.

After the interior and windows have been installed and the chassis has been completed, the assemblies of the Baden express train car from Dingler can be combined. But in the end there is still a hurdle to be overcome until the gauge 1 passenger car from 1903 is equipped with all the details.

Dingler has produced various versions of the Baden express train cars from the turn of the century as partial kits for the target group of live steamers. It is partly already soldered, painted and printed, but it requires more experience and patience than the relatively simple assembly of the Baden baggage car.

In part 1 of the assembly description I show with 60 photos how to assemble the car body.

Car kits for gauge 1 are rare and overstrain many model railroaders. Inspired by the requests of live steam railroaders from Switzerland, Dingler dared the experiment and published two kits of Baden cars. The baggage car offers hardly any major hurdles even for beginners - if they know a few tricks and tools. It is not a quick kit for three afterwork hours. But with a little patience and my detailed assembly instructions with 60 pictures you will successfully reach your goal.

The International Spur 1 meeting in Sinsheim, traditionally held this weekend, had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. But you can find out here what Dingler would have presented there. The novelties are tempting and cover a lot of the scope of our hobby.

If you get desperate when coupling 1e narrow gauge vehicles, the model coupling is to blame. Now there is a solution that gives pleasure.

Dingler had some of his models of the Ae 4/7 of the SBB photographed.

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.

Dingler has now the versions of EW 1 passenger cars for BLS, SOB and SBB.
