Just read that the complete RhB network is now available in Google Street View, that should come in very handy for all those who are a long way from the RhB.

That really is remarkable. I was just looking at Preda and Berguen...amazing how you can look up, down, all around...great for ideas. I sure do miss it though...can't wait to get back there...

But the way some of the locals on the Friends of the RhB (FB Group) are talking it just rains way too much, way too often. Hope for better weather next summer.

The Present Mrs T and myself had some uncharacteristically good fortune on our recent trip, enjoying 'MITV' weather pretty much the whole week.

Glad you had good weather, Mike, now where are the pictures!!?? :)

I'm really enjoying this Streetview thing...and I think I've figured out how to send links. Have a look at this interesting use of old ties and rail along the Arosa route:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=arosa&ie ... 85,,0,5.41

I also noticed that there are a lot of new structures along the route with what appears to be a standard design on the railings--open at top and a mesh below--quite a nice design.
I'm trying to find the avalanche gallery so I can see what I did wrong. :)

Thanks Mike!

Boy I just can't stop looking at the Arosa line--there are some beautiful old wooden stations. I really like Peist and St. Peters-Molinis.
