Dear international readers,

Welcome to spur1info, the world's only online magazine for the friends of Gauge 1. Gauge 1, that means museum-quality 1:32 scale models, mostly made of brass or die-cast, operating on 45 mm gauge tracks. Like the well-known garden railroads, but much more detailed, handcrafted in small series and true mechanical masterpieces.

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.
