hi all...

i picked up my old hobby two years ago and have decided to create my first layout... i run ac and mostly märklin but i also have a few roco lokos and a lot of roco wagons. the first starter-set i bourght was a swiss trainset and i have decided to stick to that but that also mean i have to get some german and italian lokos and cars...

i wanted to find a prototype(don't know if that's right word for it)for the layout, so i turned on google-maps and followed the gottardo/gotthard line through the alps. there i found 'chiasso' and hupac's giant works... i mostly run freight trains so it suits me perfect...

i don't have a real name for the layout yet but use 'helvetica' (latin for switcherland) as a working title. i'm only at the planning stage...

i have made a few videos so you guys can see it...

cheers
kasper



ps i dont know if this is the right forum but i will use this thread to show all progress...

Weclome to the forum Kasper! Yes, prototype is the correct word for what you are talking about... Since you are modeling HO scale then this forum is the right one... I look forward to seeing your progress :)

PS: I fixed your two videos for you... To post a YouTube video, take the video code (i.e. t62-SAIJ6ZQ) and put (YT) (/YT) tags around it, just with [ instead of (...

Not always bad though...I was tagged but was given permission for my use of Boston's "More Than A Feelin'"...kinda cool, who ever was supposed to track that kind of thing. Maybe it has to do with how well the music is used...
maybe... i read the youtube guideline for copyrighted material a few times to understand it, but i think they're like the wind... one day they blow one way and the next and sometimes they just blow ;)
some say no to everything, some consider how it's used and some don't care...
i used 26 seconds of a song for my intro and eventhough it's legal under the danish law of quotation(wich allow 30 sec), they still removed it...
