Railways

I've always been something of a train lover - from watching Thomas The Tank Engine when I was a little kid to building a model railway for many years, until we ran out of space at home. I'm currently planning a Swiss layout for when I get a place of my own, which will hopefully be in 2007. In the meantime, here's some railway photos from around the world.
