American-style model railroads are quite rare in gauge 1. But it is worthwhile to be inspired by American layouts.

In 2014 I showed a nice field railway from Denmark in scale 1:35. In the meantime the model maker has changed to a larger scale. A good reason to have a look at the old module layout again. 50 pictures in large format.

The Calenberg Industrial Railway in Oe offers countless ideas for a field and industrial railway in gauge 1 in a very confined space, because improvisation has always belonged to such narrow-gauge railways.

Part 2 with 64 large format photos.

At the NuSSA in Stadtoldendorf a narrow-gauge industrial railway was exhibited, on which a varied operation was carried out. The railway with 900 mm gauge was built in scale 1:45. A good example? 46 photos show the possibilities and how to create a credible atmosphere in a small area.

For gauge 1, narrow-gauge railways are still a niche product. In search of inspiration we visited the NuSSA - the zero and narrow gauge exhibition in Stadtoldendorf, Germany. It was worth it, because high quality model making was exhibited there.

We start with a field railway in 1:32. 46 photos of a compact, versatile layout.

From 13th through 15th March 2020, "Fascination Model Railway" will once again take place at the Maimarkthalle in Mannheim. Here, model railway enthusiasts will be able to view models and hand samples that they know from reports on the International Toy Fair.

The fair organizer is in contact with the authorities because of the corona virus. As things stand today, the fair will take place.

At the third Sauerland gauge 0 and gauge 1 meeting, three gauge 1 layouts and dioramas were shown, which demonstrated craftmanship at the highest level. My colleague Stefan Karzaunikat from Spur-Null-Magazin provided us with photos which offer many suggestions for a realistic design of layouts and dioramas in 1:32 scale.

Op de derde Sauerländer Spur 0 und Spur 1 Großbahntreffen wurden drie systemen en diorama's getoond, die de modelbouw op het hoogste niveau demonstreerden. Mijn collega Stefan Karzaunikat van Spur-Null-Magazin heeft ons foto's geleverd die ons veel suggesties bieden voor een realistisch ontwerp van faciliteiten en diorama's in schaal 1:32.
