On the pages below you can find impressions and some interesting facts about the Ore Mountains and their railways, the beautiful Swiss railways and my own model train: a website designed not only for railway fans.

When making this Website, my ambition was not to offer a completely new and highly academic view on these topics. It just made fun to leaf through photo albums, brochures and books, and to write down the thoughts and memories in connection with them.

Unless explicitly indicated otherwise, all photos have been taken by myself or members of my family.

l would be glad to know that surfing these sites has given you pleasure and, perhaps, you have found one or other useful information.

Enjoy leafing through
