We analyse the problem of one-dimensional quantum mechanics on arbitrary graphs as idealized models for quantum systems on spaces with non-trivial topologies. In particular we argue that such models can be made to accommodate the physical characteristics of wavefunctions on a network of wires and offer several derivations of a particular junction condition. Throughout we adopt a continuity condition for the wavefunction at each primitive node in the network. Results are applied to the problem of the energy spectrum of a system containing one and infinitely many junctions.
