Hi all,
Grüezi zusammen,
Hallo allemaal,

Just a short introduction.

I do follow and visit the RhB from the early 1980's on.
I was infected with the Swiss railway virus at the age of 10 on our holiday in Swizterland.
Since then I follow the Swiss railways and do run swiss model railways.
When we get the chance we go for Graubünden every year for some weeks.
To ride the trains, hiking and discover the rest of Graubünden.
We did visit other Swiss regions but Graubünden is our most favourite.

The last 20 years I do Swiss G scale on an outdoor layout.
Mostly LGB RhB and a bit of FO and MOB.
Before that I did RhB/FO HOm scale with Bemo and Ferro Suisse.
I could become weak seeing the new Bemo Om line for an indoor layout.

I already do know some members of this forum from other fora and contact.
It's nice to connect to the international RhB community.

Groeten,
Wilco

I'm sorry to hear of this. You know there is no cure for it?

Hi Wilco,

Welcome!

You can imagine what it's like when that "malady" hits one practically at birth. There were a number of vaccinations that one had to endure at a very early age, but thankfully the Swiss doctors had never heard of the railway or train virus. B-) B-) ;)

Welcome, I have to admit we aren't working very hard on a cure for the RhB 'infection' ;)

Hello Wilco.

Welcome to the forum. I've seen your name over at the Cadosch forum, I'm not a member there though - just trying to read German as best as I can and at the same time getting as much information as possible about RhB and large scale models. Nice to see you around here!

Hi all,

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Don't take the railway virus too seriously, in my case it's friendly virus.
At the age of 56 I'm still living comfortable with it.

As Thorgrim mentioned, I'm around at orher fora too.
When ist has something to do with Swiss railways or garden railways.

I would like to thank HJ for his efforts of keeping and maintaining a forum.
From a Dutch forum I know it can be a considerable effort to keep it going.

It's intersesting to see that Swiss railways and swiss model railways are so popular arond the globe.
Every now and than I sell some LGB stock for friends or myself.
It is always a surprise where on the globe it will land.

Groeten uit NL,
Wilco
