First off thank you for the forum :)

I’m afraid I don’t do Facebook and won’t do it so thank you all for the help and inspiration if this is it.
If anyone’s interested in my RhB ramblings I post them on Rmweb along with Jim and a few others in the Swiss section.
https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index ... -railways/

I’ll keep looking here until it locks though.


TTFN and thank you if it does.

Hi all,
In many respects I have to echo what Paul S has said.
I have managed to avoid getting sucked into Facebook for years for a multitude of reasons. Really not sure if I will now succumb?
The friendship and camaraderie, knowledge and insight, on this forum has been a life line against lifes' stresses for so many of us for years.
Visiting and checking for posts can be part of a daily ritual as it is such an archive of information.

HJ, I thank you for all your dedicated efforts, especially the suggested Canadian itinerary for my youngest boy a few years back when studying in Edmonton.
Thankfully he has now finished his studies, has started his first job, and so I might now have more money to spend on G Scale trinkets.

My middle son sent me some interesting pictures a few weeks back from a visit to Berlin to review a new transport simulation.
He didn't fully appreciate the significance of the loco. The video I stumbled on and his review might interest some of you.
Not RhB I know but it is trainzzzzzzzzzz and perhaps I might now have an excuse to look out for "Ludmilla."

I will keep checking in as long as..........

Echo the above - thanks for all your time and effort in running this forum. As Paul has said, we have been posting on RMWeb in the Swiss section (and others). While it will not be the same, I will start a thread on there for Swiss Webcams for anyone to post anything interesting that they see and want to share with others - we can always add other topics as and when.

I understand your reasons but a shame all the same.
Thank you for providing the forum.
I am hoping to get back into Rhb modelling in the next couple of years and was hoping to share my progress and questions on the forum.
I have always liked the small group feeling of this forum and have avoided the big groups such as RMweb where criticism seems to be as high on the agenda as support and advice.

Oh no, sad to hear it.

I don’t do Facebook, Twitter, instagram or any of those.

Thank you HJ for all the work you’ve put into keeping this Forum going.

Also thanks to all the contributors for years of sharing your thoughts, ideas and pictures.

Jan

Yes the small group here certainly is more positive on others creations with critique being constructive. Bigger forums like Rmweb do attract the downright rude and armchair experts but also some brilliant modellers who help just like here.
I’m quite diverse in my railway interests and while there’s good RhB info on the other three fora I use this has always been the definitive source on the internet.

Well it ain't over until the "fat lady" sings.

Next step. See how much is involved to get the "works" up to the most recent version ..... without any screw-ups.
Upgrades on fora seem to be notoriously glitch prone.

BTW as far as Facebook goes, it certainly is an acquired "taste". I started a "Friends of the RhB" group back in 2013. Setting it as "Closed Group", vetting the membership requests and having rules seems to be working.... so far (fingers crossed).

Now back to the usual program. ;) ;)

Nooooooooo!

HJ, please don’t do the “mic drop”!

This forum has been a constant over the years. Smart contributions from generous members to a hobby that brings joy. A heartfelt thank you to you, HJ, for keeping the forum going. I know we will all greatly miss convening here should it end. Long live the RhB! :)

Regards,
Dean

I'm already looking up the dos and don'ts of the upgrade.
As is the forum should work as usual, all except the sign-up for new members.
I thought that with having to put in a request and myself entering the required member data .... it would be bullet proof.
Well it was for a long time.... until someone figured out a hack and created chaos. GRRRR X( X( X(

PS Starting to look at the Inactive Users list. it started at 2018/12/18 and is a cool 132 pages at 50 entries each. #:-s #:-s

Many thanks for all your work over the years HJ.

The Forum was a great asset for RhB Enthusiasts and has certainly provided me with many hours of enjoyment and a great deal of inspiration.

BTW on that Facebook Group I started, one interesting development will be the mix of languages. So far English and German, but on the other FB Group there are also posts in French and the odd one in Italian along with a sprinkling of Romantsch.

Excellent news, thanks HJ! I wasn’t sure what I was going to do about FB. Hopefully after 12-19 I will have more train time and can get back to some fun RhB projects with the help and encouragement of you all. :ymhug:

Global Mass Panic Strikes RhB Community!

So perhaps it was only a dream?

Interesting that so many are reluctant to succumb to Facebook. I wonder what else we might have in common?

Thanks HJ :ymapplause:
