    Hi Chris,
    Sadly the layout which appears on my webpage no longer exists but I am in the process of building a new one.
    I didn't have live overhead wires mainly because the catenary was installed after most of the layout had been constructed and it would have been too difficult to install an operating system inside the many long tunnels.
    Now that I am starting again I need to make a decision before I start work on the tunnels :confused: :confused:
    Either way a Swiss layout wouldn't be complete without overhead wiring........live or dummy ;)
    John.

    It must have been a real pleasure to see these locomotives live.
