This beautiful model railroad layout belongs to a railway fan from Germany. He started construction in 2006. On this layout, there are two levels: The upper level represents a little village with a railway station, with a marshalling yard and with a round house for steam locomotives. The lower level contains a large fiddle yard. The whole layout is built in 1 gauge. Gauge 1, 1 scale or gauge one is a model railroading and toy train standard that was popular in the early 20th century, particularly with European manufacturers. Gauge one was standardized at 1:32 scale. Today, 1 gauge experiences a renaissance, first in the UK and then elsewhere. This was helped by 1 gauge being the same size as the modern G scale, a popular standard for outdoor model railroads.
