17 comments
Vintage trains also run on our narrow-gauge railway with a gauge of 1 metre. The vintage train club has a narrow-gauge 1C1 (262) coupled tender locomotive, which originates in Denmark, and, among other things, two passenger cars and a parcel mail car, as well as two Polish sugar beet freight cars of the Dobre type.

The parts for the Power Function and the motor are hidden in the parcel post van. The passenger cars only have 3rd class and are fully furnished. The semaphore signal is controlled by means of a wire pull and a hand crank.
