Hi,
Today I saw an article that the Swiss Post is testing delivery of up to 1KG post, with drones. Hmmm. I wonder if this will take much away from the RhB post business. :-)

Amazon was contemplating that as well.

In other News; "RhB layout Grischun" started inquiries regarding surveying for extra space using a drone, along with recording the track work to catch any possible rock slides and avalanches. Image Image
