by

Small locomotives are found far too seldom for Gauge 1. MBW will soon be delivering the DRG, DR and DB class 80 shunting locomotive. The attractive steam locomotive model is suitable for shunting in passenger and freight stations as well as in industrial operations. On a diorama, the tender locomotive could serve sidings.

A review with 48 photos.

by

In many respects, Märklin's SNCF 241-A-58 (55085) is similar to the 241-A-65 preserved in Switzerland, but there are differences. Probably undeniable is that the gauge 1 model in green looks best and will boost the French market. 51 photos in large format.

by

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

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

In the second part we look again at the station Cranzahl, other small stations at the narrow gauge railway and accompany trains with the camera.

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

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.

by

Modelbex announced today on its website a new steam locomotive for gauge 1.

66 excellent large format photos show the qualities of the 08 1001 of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, which Märklin produced for gauge 1. The review is about differences to the 241.A.65 and little things that are not so well done. The model should delight collectors who were not previously interested in Reichsbahn vehicles.

by

The photos of the 08 1001 of the DR from Märklin are for the most part already done. A foretaste of the impressive exotic steam locomotive that you might want to have in your gauge 1 collection after seeing these pictures.

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.

by

Wunder Präzisionsmodelle will soon announce an exclusive novelty for gauge 1. spur1info has the facts.

by

by
