Dear international readers,

Welcome to spur1info, the world's only online magazine for the friends of Gauge 1. Gauge 1, that means museum-quality 1:32 scale models, mostly made of brass or die-cast, operating on 45 mm gauge tracks. Like the well-known garden railroads, but much more detailed, handcrafted in small series and true mechanical masterpieces.

On April 3, 2012, the first articles went online. After nine years, spur1info is still the only online magazine in the world with the topic of Gauge 1: German and English, free from the constraints of printed magazines, faster, more critical and with around 3,000 photos per year, a unique source of information for readers on all continents. It is a small, fine community that has not only moved together here as "homo ludens" (the playing man), but also pursues its hobby to a high standard.

Searching for keywords often brought inaccurate results as well. Now it works.

Many thanks to all who have renewed their subscription during the last weeks. Unfortunately, the old archive was no longer accessible. This error is now fixed.

Furthermore there are tips for a comfortable login.

Dear readers,

Good news: The photos are now visible and are displayed in greater brilliance and sharpness.

The password spur1info only needs to be entered once and then replaced by your own password. From then on everything will work as usual. If you have any problems with this, please call me or send me your personal password, which I will enter minutes later.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

As of today, spur1info, the world's only online magazine on gauge 1, is presenting itself in a new look. Publisher Friedhelm Weidelich and web developer Andreas Lochmann from byte-werk have deliberately dispensed with fashionable bombast and huge photos on endless start pages. At its core, spur1info has remained what it has been for almost eight years: elegant, straightforward and user-friendly.
