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

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

A station with three tracks and a convenient loading track marks the end point of the fantastic U-shaped layout from the early epoch II. There is a lot going on here, but nothing seems overloaded or exaggerated. 40 inspiring photos.

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

By cleverly separating several motifs, a section has been created on the middle section of the gauge 1 dream layout where new details are constantly being discovered. 28 photos in large format show how a 3D effect was created despite the shallow depth.

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

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

They are needed as decoration for fields along the railroad embankment, but also as cargo in the early railroad eras. Now they are coming soon as a kit: sheep.

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

Now there is a much broader offer of the figure designer and a website about it.

by

Shop showcases of scale 1:32 buildings are often decorated with photos because the decoration is laborious or corresponding goods are not available. A kit with musical instruments for a stylish music shop of epochs I to IV will be available soon.

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.
