Mrs B is going through the photo albums and came across some views of other layouts which have existed for a time up in the loft. These are of a Swiss HOm layout based on an imaginary line from St Moritz to Chiavenna in Italy using Berninabahn stock. Over the years as well as Irish , Great Western, Highland, Glasgow & South Western, North Eastern I built some 5 Swiss layouts and N HO and O scale US layouts. There were probably others best forgotten!  I think my daughter Lynne probably took these ones as she helped with painting the scenery.

I think it was Peco flexible Hom 12mm gauge. Somewhere I have a video of another Swiss loft layout which was both standard and metre gauge with a large viaduct. If I can find it I'll put that on as well.

FOUND IT. The layout didn't progress much past the testing phase as it was extremely hard to get under the baseboards to the operating well. Later in 1999 it gave way to the Sligo & Donegal Junction.

The video is 4:3 but this site can't cope with that so Double CLICK on the image to play it at the correct aspect
