It’s been a while since I wrote a post about a modelable European intermodal yard so today I thought we could take a look at the Terminal Combiné Chavornay SA (TERCO) intermodal yard in Chavornay, Switzerland.
In lieu of any photos of the complex, here’s a satellite image of the yard and its immediate surroundings:
So far so ordinary perhaps, but this yard caught my eye because it’s indirectly connected to the Swiss national railway system by an intriguing little Swiss short-line called the Orbe-Chavornay railway.
I’m always on the lookout for prototype photographs that capture railway activity from a slightly different perspective, particularly if it might work well as a viewpoint in a slightly unconventional module or cameo.
It’s been a while since my last post and I thought I should get on and finish the post I started many months ago about a local model railway society exhibition I attended back in November 2017.
This annual show is organised by Letchworth Model Railway Society and usually has a really interesting mixture of trade stands and layouts in a range of scales, so it’s well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
