Two Polish modelers were running PKP diesel and steam locomotives they had built themselves on a large gauge 1 oval. And Stangel had brought along new kits.

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.

A new subscriber from South America builds French 1/32 scale townhouses at the highest level, inspired by Emmanuel Nouaillier. Miniature art at its best.

How do you build a ballast plant or a loading station? Horst Göhr shows: Like this, for example!

In the 1970s, DB locomotive 85 007 stood in the parking lot in front of the engineering college in Constance. As a museum piece, it came to Freiburg under a shelter. Hans and Walter Ziegler have rebuilt it in 1:32 scale. A building instruction for patient model builders.

To build seven tank cars, you need time and patience. Now they are ready to roll on 45 mm track.

Aby zbudować siedem wagonów cystern, potrzeba czasu i cierpliwości. Teraz są one gotowe do jazdy po torach 45 mm.

by

There is no better prototype than the prototype. And suddenly chance helps to make an idea come true in 1:32 scale. A series of worker's houses, supported by an automobile manufacturer, was converted into models down to the last detail.

After the 2013 Spur1 meeting in Sinsheim, I reported on July 7, 2013 about Wilgro models that were offered at Wyko-Echtdampf. Among the heavily patinated models were also two worth seeing half-assembled kits of the class 86.

According to the comments, the models created by Mr. Groß in this condition were suitable to enrich the respective scene as rusty models on the siding or on a scrap yard.

The following report by Hans and Walter Ziegler shows that there is another way and that the two torsos do not have to eke out an existence as lifeless scrap.

Jacek Wysocki from Poland is currently building a tank car train. Here are some snapshots.

Horst Göhr has built the former station building of Spechtritz on the Saxonian Weißeritz valley railway in 1:32 scale - another masterpiece.

After the steam locomotives and their cabs in the first part, the second part is about Dingler's V 36 and what can be found and further refined under the hood and roof.

by

Removable roofs on the cabs of gauge 1 locomotives allow the interiors to be upgraded and equipped with simple means. Just like movable flaps and doors on engine compartments and front ends, they provide deep insights for the discerning eye of the technically interested locomotive collector. Individualizing and adding to the models are part of our hobby. For Ern Hettinger it is a very essential part.

In 2016, the fantastic model maker Attilio Mari had recorded his life's work. Now he is retiring through age.

Shortly after the Second World War, people in Germany had other things to worry about than building model trains. With the Flying Hamburger on a self-built track system, there is a history that should not be completely lost. Especially since there were already functions built in that do not exist in gauge 1 to this day.

Before the coaling station Hans and Walter Ziegler built a small workshop for their museum depot Fützen. The illuminated model is removable and has a sophisticated power supply.

by

In addition to the Ziegler brothers' contribution to the construction of the small coaling station, the supply sources now come here.

by

The Ziegler brothers have completed their museum depot with a small coaling station. After a long wait they decided to build the model themselves. It is functional and looks good.

Here they describe and show how they went about building it.

by

After his excellent Polish Dragon, Jacek Wysocki built five tank cars. His gauge 1 models are still getting even better.

by

There is nothing to replace wood in the model. Hans and Walter Ziegler have revised a flat car from KM1, which improves the appearance with a real wooden floor.

by

Many locomotives of the Deutsche Bundesbahn were used elsewhere at the end of their service at the state railway. A few V 200's came into the desert - and not each one survived. Klaus Wagner built models of these.

by

Yves Rittener has finished his vineyard. It doesn't get any better than this!

by

Jacek Wysocki's Dragon is finished. An impressive gauge 1 model from Poland, completely self-built.

by

Recently model railway friends met in Lodz in Poland for a small model railway fair. There were also three 1-gauge enthusiasts.

At the Intermodellbau in Dortmund, Volker Gerisch presented his diorama of a factory in the Sauerland region in 1/22.5 scale. The interior furnishings in the offices and the porter's lodge are of the highest level.
