Swiss Meter Gauge


Photos of Davis's HOm scale railroad.


Dave's layout is of an unusual gauge and prototype for this side of the Atlantic Ocean.
The layout is HOm - that is HO scale meter gauge depicting the junction of the Swiss railways Furka-Oberalp (FO) and the Rhaetian Railways (RhB) at Disentis.
The layout also includes the rack section (which is fully functional) of the FO over the Furka Pass at the foot of the Rhone Glacier.
The bulk of the models are from the German manufacturer Bemo.
