Hi guys,

Is there a diagram somewhere showing the current Marklin 1 gauge track pieces and how they can be arranged? You know, like you can get for their M, K and C track systems...

In addition I found the Märklin Technik-Tipp 603 for gauge 1

https://www.maerklin.de/...faq/Technik-Tipp-603.pdf

a few pictures at www.google.de

https://www.google.de/se...amp;bih=531&dpr=1.67

and of course again only in German a gauge 1 fans homepage

http://www.spur1-mel.de/index.php

but he has some pictures and offers plans for downloads with pictures graphics and circuit layouts, e.g.

http://www.spur1-mel.de/...-/2-adapter-weichenmotor

Then of course modellplan which offers the software WINTRACK here for gauge 1

https://modellplan.de/os...1.html&cPath=4_14_17

and finally a German forum for gauge 1. You can alter the software to English, but not the posts themselves.

Happy (and busy BigGrin ) New Year.

Best Regards

Excellent that's great thanks guys.

This info is actually for my dad. He has the old narrow radius track from the 90's starters and is looking to buy new track/turnouts.

One more question - do the turnouts come with a hand lever to operate? Are there clip-on turnout motors/solenoids and with built in decoders like C track?

Marklin have recently discontinued their stainless steel track in favour of track that was previously manufactured by Hübner.

I don't have any of the Hübner track. The 5977 / 5978 stainless steel turnouts come with hand levers, and can have a point motor fitted (5625) but these do not come with a decoder.

The Hübner points have a hand switch mechanism supplied with them, and there are also addon turnout motors (59079) and turnout decoders (59080).

It looks like, because all the accessories you find here in general

https://www.maerklin.de/...cts/gauge-1/accessories/

and for decoders in particular

Hi - I jump into this thread as it is about Geometry - 1 Gauge.

I am planning a little shunting layout and is a newcomer in this scale. Before I order the tracks I have a question: Is S-curve 1020/1394 (22,5/15 grade) acceptable in this scale when you use max length 50 cm rolling stock. I know S curve is forbidden but little room and big scale - I have to swallow something.

Can someone comments this please. The S curve is a above the red locomotive in the track plan( size 1:6 )

You'll be fine with that - I've had passenger coaches run through those sorts of curves with no issues. Just don't run trains too fast and always set the points for the direction of travel when running against the point.

A question regarding turnouts - does isolated(dead) frogs make a problem in this scale?

No BigGrin

Theoretically some 2 axle locos with bad power pickup on one axle could have problems;
but I've never had any problems at all. BigGrin
