In Giessen, the field railway module boxes of the Michasdorfer Kleinbahn were constantly surrounded. I have photographed the layout in 1:32 scale at Micha Schmidt elaborately and captured many details that you can only perceive with the camera. 30 photos in large format.

by

Those who wanted to explore all the layouts needed a lot of time and were able to gain interesting impressions. The creativity of many layout builders was convincing. A picture gallery.

by

Among the many layouts, some already known, the O gauge layout Chemin de fer de la chapelle with a northern French SNCF motif stood out. 20 photos in large format.

by

The three module boxes with a 1:32 scale light railroad, designed down to the last detail, were constantly besieged. It revolves around a sour cucumber manufactory in the style of the 1950s. The modules rightly received the attention, because the modeler works on a very high level.

In part 2, Axel Kreidel describes the operating locations and self-built buildings of his gauge 1 layout.

by

With gauge 1, space is always at a premium if you want to do some operating. Axel Kreidel has equipped a room with a small layout that allows varied running and switching.

Part 1 describes the conception of his layout based on Bavarian motifs.

by

Together Jörn Gomann, Marc Schneider showed his Hünstetten station, which allows for varied operation with only three switches.

by

There is a lot going on at Klaus Wagner's gauge 1 layout, which was presented at the Spur1/Spur0 fair in Mainz.

28 photos give an insight into the operation.

by

Thomas Zeitz presented his versatile 1/32nd scale field railway at the Spur1/Spur0 Messe in Mainz.

The large module layout "Saxon Narrow Gauge Railroad Hamburg" was disbanded. 26 pictures for the farewell.

by

In the fifth and final part of the report on the Saxon Narrow Gauge Railroad Hamburg we look at the three stations of Wilkaustein, where standard gauge and narrow gauge were cleverly combined. 40 photos.

by

Part 4 on the Saxon Narrow Gauge Railway Hamburg deals with an industrial siding, the interlockings on the standard gauge line with three-rail track and a light railroad. A gauge 1 layout can be that diverse. 43 photos.

by

The stations Vierenstraße and Venusberg of the large Saxon narrow gauge railroad Hamburg are presented with 34 photos. There are many possibilities for shunting operations here and a locomotive shed in each location. The buildings were self-built after Saxon prototypes.

by

The second part describes the development of the module layout of the friends of Saxon narrow gauge railroads in Hamburg. The large 1e narrow gauge layout has ten stations. Three of them are presented in part 2 with 35 atmospheric photos in large format.

by

A large narrow gauge layout based on Saxon models has to be dismantled. For the time being, we take a last look at the gauge 1 module layout, which reproduces the flair of the Saxon narrow gauge railroads of the Deutsche Reichsbahn in the 1970s to 1980s like hardly any other.

Part 1 with 38 photos in large format.

by

A highly detailed Saxon narrow gauge layout is waiting for the detailed presentation. The first photos.

by

Almost finished is the large H0 layout in the Märklineum in Göppingen, Germany. Snapshots and impressions.

by

In the summer of 2017, I portrayed an exceptional gauge 1 layout in Austria. Now a photographically very talented student provides us with atmospheric photos of the further built layout.

by

Finally, a few snapshots from the Intermodellbau.

by

Over 30 model railroad layouts were exhibited at Intermodellbau 2021. Most were of high quality craftsmanship and with original ideas or completely based on the prototype. Often it is model builders from abroad who implement a theme in great detail.

by

With a little modeling experience, building a scale 1 modular layout is not that difficult. Choosing the right season, the result is a jewel that displaces the dark season.

by

Again and again, the Gauge 1 Friends from Leuven in Belgium develop interesting layouts and dioramas for gauge 1, which feature a wealth of details.

The latest driving diorama basically fits on a bookshelf. 50 photos show details and international train operations.

by

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

by

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.

by

The exhibition in Norway is featured in two videos showing the module layout in operation.

by

From Norway I received snapshots of a harmonious, imaginative and realistically designed module layout.

by

On Sunday an excellent gauge 1 module layout can be visited in Norway.

by

Hundreds of Gauge 1 dioramas and layouts are secretly blooming at private homes. Here we have the last opportunity to view an elongated diorama from Switzerland, which is now for sale.

by

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.

by

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.

by

Yesterday evening, shortly before 8 p.m., the public service broadcaster Hessische Rundfunk reported about a large gauge 1 layout built by Fine Models and destined for a customer in Asia.

by

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.

by

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.
