The other day someone from Switzerland shouted it out
"S.B.B!" in German way of pronounciation when he found some Swiss coarches in my model train layout.
A 1st class passenger car of S.B.B (Schweizerische BundesBahnen = Swiss National Railway)
A 2nd class passenger car of S.B.B
A 2nd class passenger car with a control room and a luggage room of S.B.B
Seldom find this kind of passenger cars with control rooms in Japan.
A Swiss private railway B.L.S 2nd class passenger car.
Another B.L.S 2nd class passenger car.
A B.L.S 1st class passenger car.
I happen to have some Japanese, European and American model train cars. And our guests are from all over the world with many nationalities, so when they find some train cars of their home country, they react so much lol....
Why do you have this one here?!?!?
I have never stolen any! lol....
I guess perhaps people never expect a Japanese inn master has these international model train cars.
They state it's a Swiss national railway passenger car by SBB(Schweizerische BundesBahnen:German) CFF(Chemins de Fer Fédéraux suisses :French) FFS(Ferrovie Federali Svizzere:Italian).
They do it with German and French, this way was alredy the old way when I travelled around Europe in 1984. They changed the way little by little to the new one (upper one)
