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.

MTH Trains will close in 2021 after 40 years. Before that, however, there are still three locomotive types in 1:32. One locomotive is expressly also suitable for Märklin tracks.

Older gauge 1 models did not always have such a high level of detail as today. That can be altered: Bernhard Lindlbauer describes how to breathe a little more life into a 25-year-old model from Fine Art Models.

spur1info shows 59 photos of the two handbuilt samples of the Prussian T 3 in Prussian state railroad version and as a Bundesbahn locomotive, which might make you go weak. Because the three-axle cult tender locomotive is just too sweet! A detailed report describes the equipment of the gauge 1 model.

I received the following message from MBW, which contains more details about the price and delivery schedule of the announced models.

Hans and Walter Ziegler show how they patinated an 01 from KM1 with simple means. This gives courage to try it yourself. Some prototype photos from the end of the steam era give suggestions how far you should (not) go.

Just in time for the delivery of the Baden car kits from Dingler, Michael Wyrwich from Wyko-Echtdampf delivered the Baden IVg to his customers.

Peter Krattiger has photographed his model and is impressed by the quality.

With its 8.55 kg, the SNCF 241-A-65 for gauge 1 is a heavyweight with very high tractive power. This applies to the Märklin model both technically and literally. Because the aesthetics of the French steam locomotive in Swiss hands appeals to everyone. Read the detailed review of the gauge 1 model here, with over 100 excellent photos.

Märklin's 241-A-65 has arrived for a review. And because unpacking is so emotional, my son took photos of the process.

Fine Models has finished the last unpainted shown hand sample of the 97 101. Four photos of the gauge 1 rack locomotive, which will be available in autumn 2020.

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.

Ten professional photos of the production model of DB's 81 001, era IIIb, by Steiner Modellwerke for gauge 1. For subscribers only.

Freshly unpacked is the DB tender locomotive of class 81, which has just arrived from Steiner Modellwerke.

Besides the 07 1001 of the DR from Proform there is also a 07 1001 as a live steam model. It is operating in Switzerland.

by Friedhelm Weidelich

07 1001 clearly shows the French provenance. Proform built the gauge 1 model to order.

Spur 1 Austria made test runs with the model of the 93 and published a short report and photos.

Little is known so far about the class 51 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, which will soon be announced for gauge 1 as well. Here are the details.

Here are a few photos.

The Christmas presents are never ending: Fine Models announces tomorrow the Bavarian rack locomotive PtzL 3/4. Here already are the details and photos of the handmade samples.

by Friedhelm Weidelich

Märklin offers the high-heeled S 3/6 in H0 scale, Wyko-Echtdampf now has 1-gauge livesteam model. And also a somewhat special model is present.

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.

On the way to Mulhouse in Alsace I tried to photograph some vehicles of the Dreiseebahn in Seebrugg. The collection is interesting.

At the station you will also find relics of past times.

45 photos.
