Proform is working on new gauge 1 models for narrow-gauge tracks.

by

The extremely creative Michasdorfer Kleinbahn in 1:32 is constantly expanding its fields of business. Now it also runs at a paper factory. 34 photos with many details worth seeing.

by

These narrow-gauge systems are still worth seeing, even if they have been exhibited before.

by

Detailed relief buildings, vehicles and figures provide the narrow-gauge diorama with a background that holds many a small discovery in store.

by

You can shunt well on a long gauge 1 diorama, especially if you lay narrow-gauge track. 40 photos to stimulate your imagination.

by

Proform has completed a small batch of Rhaetian Railway's Ge 2/4 electric locomotive. The model for gauge 1 is Swiss made and runs on meter gauge tracks.

by

The modular layout of Dr. Thomas Pauli from Öhringen was exhibited for the first time and had an effect on the visitors of the Liller Halle by something that is rarely found in gauge 1: real operation. "Playing with meaning" was the name given to it once a long time ago by a railroad magazine.

by

The Toury sugar factory in France, founded in 1875, once had an extensive narrow-gauge network for beet transport and factory traffic. Uwe Haas has set up a monument to it.

by

The meter-gauge Rhaetian Railway already exists very successfully in all model railroad scales. Now Dingler and Proform are pushing ahead with the development of 1m models - a new subject with great appeal in the gauge 1 world as well. Swiss manufacturer Proform already has a range on offer that is even suitable for outdoor use.

The West Saxon 0e-friends offered 0e-fun in Gießen with a large module layout.

by

The model railroad club "Friedrich List" Leipzig e. V. showed in Giessen a narrow gauge diorama integrated into a small layout. Special attention was paid to tiny details.

by

"Vollendete Baukunst" - Perfect Architecture is the name of the large-format book by artist and model builder Volker Gerisch. The title could not be more apt, because Gerisch leaves nothing unfinished, he miniaturizes in 1:22.5 scale and goes to the limits of what is possible - occasionally even beyond. This has also resulted in by-products such as old-fashioned telephones and lamps in 1:32 for 1 gauge.

by

Not everyone has the space to document an entire station area in 1:32 scale. In narrow gauge, the stations are naturally smaller. Therefore, a masterpiece was created with the three structures of Ochsenhausen, which spur1info has the chance to show with 44 photos.

by

How do you get the railroad and the solar eclipse in the picture at the same time? Tough!

During the Days of the Railway Friend at the German Railway Association (DEV) between Bruchhausen-Vilsen and Asendorf, freight trains ran on meter gauge. The oldest load on a 125-year-old flat car was a 99-year-old tractor.

by

As usual, during the Days of the Railroad Friend(s) at the Deutscher Eisenbahn-Verein, there is more operation between Bruchhausen-Vilsen and Asendorf on meter gauge than on the other operating days. But on the standard gauge line the "Kaffkieker" shuttled.

by

Today and tomorrow the Days of the Railroad Friend take place around Bruchhausen-Vilsen. There will be traffic on the meter gauge railroad, a standard gauge railcar and shunting demonstrations showing the loading of standard gauge wagons onto roller trucks and corresponding freight trains to Heiligenberg and Asendorf.

by

The Swabian narrow-gauge railroad Marbach - Beilstein - Heilbronn has been memorialized. A comprehensive book. If only layout and printing would be better...

by

At the Spur1/Spur0 fair in Mainz, there were also unusual things to see in 1:43.5 scale: Narrow gauge with minimal space requirements. One idea could also be transferred to 1 gauge.

by

Dingler has specified the model versions at the Rhaetian Crocodile. The meter gauge model for 1 Gauge is coming.

by

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

In the third and last part about the train des pignes in the south of France, another 62 photos document this beautiful steam railroad and its meter gauge line in Provence. In total, there were 168 photos - enough to fill a book.

by

In the second part we continue our journey with the pinecone train and have plenty of time to explore the station and the village of Annot. And then the locomotive is turned for the return trip.

by

France has a number of beautiful meter gauge railroads. We took a ride on the Chemins de fer de Provence. A report with 55 photos that will give you wanderlust.

by

The Saxon Narrow Gauge Railway Museum in Breitenbrunn-Rittersgrün in the Ore Mountains, Germany, is well worth a visit.

by

In the third and last part of the report about the Fichtelbergbahn of the Sächsische Dampfeisenbahngesellschaft (SDG), we once again meet steam trains on the way and look at the Hüttenbach Viaduct and the terminus Kurort Oberwiesenthal, which has a nostalgic automat. Two videos complement my photos.

by

The Fichtelbergbahn Cranzahl - Kurort Oberwiesenthal in Saxony overcomes a difference in altitude of 240 meters (789 ft) on a route of 17.4 km (10.8 m) in the Ore Mountains. With steam, of course. We went along for the ride.

by

To partially rebuild a dismantled narrow-gauge railroad and to run a busy operation on it: At the Pressnitztalbahn, volunteers have managed to bring a Saxon narrow-gauge railroad back to life. A visit and a ride are worthwhile. And you quickly realize: The Harz narrow-gauge railroads could certainly learn a lot from the narrow-gauge railroad operators in Saxony. 47 photos showing an adorable 750 mm narrow gauge railroad in the Ore Mountains.

by

A refined 3D print was the basis for the Reichsbahn maintenance car from Oberdittmansdorf in Saxony.

by

Since Whitsun, the first German museum railroad of the German Railway Association (DEV) is allowed to operate again. Although under the Corona-related conditions, but with success to justify the effort. Not only is the train simply operated, but the background of the meter-gauge narrow-gauge railroad and the railroad operations are explained to the passengers. A living museum with ambition.

by

Epokemodeller from Denmark no longer offers gauge 1 buildings.Horst Göhr built and worked on one of the last kits of the water house in Steinbach in Saxony.

by

Because Covid-19 has significantly affected the whole season, the first German museum railroad is operating for the first time in autumn.

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

If you get desperate when coupling 1e narrow gauge vehicles, the model coupling is to blame. Now there is a solution that gives pleasure.

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

In Stadtoldendorf, Germany, Martin Krane recently exhibited its compact 0e field railway once again. It shows that you can build an interesting motif in 1:45 on the space of an H0 layout. In 1:35 or in the true 1:32 scale you would not need much more space. Maybe a reason to think about a little layout.

33 photos with many ideas for your imagination.
