In the years 1970-1980 I went along with my parent's Switzerland holidays. Over that period I spent 76 weeks, one and a half years, in total in Switzerland. At that time it belonged to normality, but with the knowledge of hindsight and the wisdom of the years, I can not be grateful enough for those years and for what I was given in all the things I have seen and done. For one it is there that I acquired my German and much of my English. I am now virtually trilingual, a gift I am grateful for every single day. Second is my love for walking, mountains and camping. Last but not least my modelling interest awoke here. To commemorate the 40th anniversary in 2014 of my railroading interest I started to digitise the photos I have made in that period.
