Page last updated 3rd May 2022
Welcome to the modelling pages of the Swiss Railways Society website.
This page has three initial purposes:
- Somewhere to place background material for articles in Swiss Express;
- A place for extra information that our members would like to submit.
- Details of relevant model railway exhibitions
Whilst our name implies an interest only in railway, many of our members have wider interests in modelling things Swiss, so the main constraint will be ‘Swiss’, so articles on modelling tramways, buses, boats and scenery are all welcome. If there is any information that you think should be on this page, submit it to the Webmaster.
Stefan Unholz has a list of Model Shops in Switzerland which is regularly updated, to visit it click here.
Upcoming Model Railway Exhibitions with a Continental Theme

18th June – German Railways Society Global Rail 2022 – Didcot Civic Hall, Britwell Road, Didcot, Oxon OX11 7JN.
The SRS has no connection with these exhibitions and it may be beneficial to check that they are actually taking place before attending.
Swiss layouts scheduled to appear at future exhibitions
Switzerland on the Move –
Neuburg 1913 –
The walkers look on from the hillside, as the afternoon passenger service enters the station.
A very busy scene as freight trains cross at Zweitesfeld.
A loco exits the underpass as a steel train is seen leaving Zweitesfeld under “clear” aspects.
This layout is planned to attend the 2022 Society AGM
