Page last updated 10th August 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.
A members has informed us that Scottish Garden Railways have a large quantity of LGB Scale RhB and MOB Locos, coaches etc. for sale secondhand. If you are interested their website is here. The Society has no connection with this firm and offer this information only as a service to members.
Sue and Chris who ran MITV and whose videos the Society still sell are selling their collection of HOm items collected over many years with the view to one day building a layout, which is now unrealistic. They are mainly RhB items by Bemo, Pola and Faller including locomotives, rolling stock, track, buildings kits, etc. Most are unopened in original boxes. For more information and a full list with prices please contact Sue on 07733224459 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
