SNCF's 241-A-65 is a Swiss-based heritage locomotive that leaves no one cold. As a Märklin model for gauge 1 it was worth 98 photos in large format. The pictures of this impressive French locomotive show its strengths and few weaknesses, the review is in progress.

Märklin has now delivered the second pot car with item number 58725. If you can get the gauge 1 model out of the packaging without a crash, you can look forward to a little handicraft fun.

Like the announcement, the production model of DB's class 81 has its premiere at spur1info. The first gauge 1 locomotive from Steiner Modellwerke is now available. The price-performance ratio is right. But what is particularly well done and what can be criticised? A review with 88 large format photos.

From 1957 the Deutsche Bundesbahn built a makeshift baggage car from two 3rd class makeshift passenger cars. Like all transitional solutions in Germany, these cars were in use for decades.

Wunder Präzisionsmodelle now delivered the long baggage cars, which were used in all types of DB trains. The gauge 1 models are well made, but need matching radii. 49 photos of all details.

Modelle von Lokomotiven, die man selbst erlebt und fotografiert hat, sind relativ selten. Umso erfreulicher ist es, wenn von Kiss Modellbahnen eines der letzten Exemplare der Baureihe 78 als Spur-1-Modell angeboten wird. Die 078 192-2 war zuletzt im Bw Rottweil eingesetzt und fuhr von Rottweil aus Personenzüge nach Tuttlingen, Villingen und Horb – und auch den letzten nach Balingen.

Wie gut ist das Modell gelungen und stimmt es auch mit dem Vorbild überein? Fünf Vorbildfotos und über 70 Bilder des Modells erleichtern die Beurteilung.

Märklin's 1-gauge model of the DB class 78 entered the market at the end of December 2018 and was very successful. In a few days I will introduce the 78 from Kiss, which is now being delivered.

The review of the Märklin model is still available in the archive. To compare and because the reproduction of the 73 photos in the new system is better, I present the article about Märklin's 78 440, article number 55077, here once again.
