In 1927, the Swiss Federal Railways SBB purchased two baggage cars from BLS for use in the "Gotthard Pullman Express". 36 photos of the gauge 1 model of Wunder with fantastic views of the rich interior.

Two CIWL Pullman cars and a baggage car from the luxury trains "Edelweiss" and "Gotthard Pullman Express" are presenting themselves before the camera. The first one is spectacular on the outside, less so inside. But in any case a gem for gauge 1 collectors with lots of space. Have a look and enjoy!

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.

The International Spur 1 meeting in Sinsheim, traditionally held this weekend, had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. But you can find out here what Dingler would have presented there. The novelties are tempting and cover a lot of the scope of our hobby.

Achim Lutz has weathered a pseudo-patinated used SBB Eaos open freight car from Märklin according to a prototype photo. The effort was worth it.

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

On the stand of Fulgurex you could find all sorts of familiar things. But the next Gauge 1 novelty is already planned - with an interesting side effect.

It couldn't be better: Yves Rittener shows how he built the vines for a 1-gauge club layout. The result is high-end model making.

On ne peut pas faire mieux: Yves Rittener montre comment il a construit les vignes pour un aménagement de club de voie 1. Le résultat est un modélisme de première classe.

The Sommerfeldt overhead contact line for gauge 1 has gone into mass production and is available. But before we get to grips with the model, I would like to convey some facts about the original and outline the limits in the model.

A cohesive train appearance as with the prototype is a matter of nerves of steel with four-axle passenger cars on gauge 1. Even the fine motor skills of a surgeon won't get you far. But there are now practicable tools to solve these problems cleverly and to ensure an automatic connection of the cars.

Dingler has now the versions of EW 1 passenger cars for BLS, SOB and SBB.
