Page last updated 22th November 2023
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 closed his website which featured a list of Model Shops in Switzerland. We have a pdf version of the list as it was in June 2022 here.
This will not be updated.
Upcoming Model Railway Exhibitions with a Continental Theme will be listed here:
The SRS has no connection with these exhibitions and it may be beneficial to check that they are actually taking place before attending.
Members’ Swiss layouts and details of exhibitions they are due to attend.
Switzerland on the Move –
Neuburg 1913 –
Neuburg 1913 and 2013 won the Continental Modeller Cup for the best Continental Layout at the 2022 Warley Show.
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.
Rue CFF / Bahnweg – Ian Hedgecock – HO Gauge SBB/BLS is a compact small terminus layout portraying a fictitious ‘part of town’ somewhere in the Jura foothills / North West Switzerland where the delineation between French and German speaking communities is vague. SBB and BLS locos power the mainly push pull local passenger and serve the Co-op warehouse/bakery. There is also a small stabling point to which locos from elsewhere in the area come for brief layovers.
