Ok so I got the railway bug as a kid! My greatgrandad was a driver on the GWR in the days of steam. As a result I just like messing about with trains! So there are no epochs on my layout. You'll see steam hauling the Orient Express alongside a Swiss Crocodile, along by the DE ICE. I moved over to model German / Swiss some years ago as it gave me a good excuse to have examples of most locos! The layout is about the 4th or 5th I've done over the years. Bietschtal gets its name from the viaduct in Switerland of which I have a model on the layout. So a totally fictitious place somewhere on the German Swiss border in an alpine setting.
