Transformation of  the switch tower

Welcome to everyone who is interested in modeltrains.This site concerns gauge 1, scale  1/32 and  a railroadgauge of  45mm.

I want to deny the myth that says that one needs to have a lot of space in order to create a layout and play with gauge 1.The most important thing is, I think, the fact that the image our eyes make, should be a filled image. When you have a HO layout , you need a train consisting of 8 passenger cars or 40 boxcars in order to create that filled image. In gauge 1, one locomotive and 1 or 2 small cars is enough. So your layout should not necessarily be any larger than a HO one.

Going to a club gives you the opportunity to meet other persons who are interested in trains. An exchange of ideas can help you  with your own layout or with  someone else his layout . This year, the club of Leuven, LMTC , is having  her  25th anniversary.  Since 2008 we also have a smal gauge 1 layout.
