11.07.08Gyrobus page added.
10.10.07Walking Tree Publishers now have their own domain at www.walking-tree.org. I am still the webmaster, however, and have implemented a facelift of the design, which had hardly changed since 1999.
19.09.07Created a simple search function for the photo gallery.
24.07.07Having finally run out of space on the current 50MB disk allocation, I have sought a new hosting solution. The first section to be migrated is the photo gallery. This is now on http://photo.proaktiva.eu.

14.12.05Added Tram: Zürich: tram article.

27.06.05Apologies for the lack of updates on this page. This website is far from dead: There have been changes, even if not on the scale as before. Most notable, the Zürich tram section has, since November 2003, had a news section with updates on a regular basis. This news archive is now searchable. The newslog has grown to be the most visited sections of the entire website. Also added are a fleetlist (in progress) and an events agenda. Other sections of this website have also seen some minor changes. As the disk quota is practically full, some older sections may be redesigned or removed to make space for more up to date topics. A major redesign of the Walking Tree Publishers section is planned.
