For a few months now, I have been working with another Forum member Brian Nixon who lives in South Africa, to produce a new Photographic Website aimed at helping our members to model the RhB.

It also works for those who haven't been lucky enough to visit the RhB, giving a pictorial record not only of the RhB but those parts of Graubünden served by this wonderful Narrow Gauge Railway.

I have known Brian for over 10 years and in 2011 we were lucky enough to spend a week together based at The Grichuna Hotel in Filisur and travelling the length and breadth of the RhB.

Brian is a keen RhB modeller, hence this website and photos of some of his projects can be found on the website, as you will gather he models in a number of gauges.

So here goes with the website address :-

rhbstations.co.za

Lastly it goes without saying that we welcome your comments and contributions to this new Website.

Richard Jackson and Brian Nixon

Thanx Glenn, will pass these on to my friend Brian who is currently away in Mozambique, so there may be a bit of a delay in replying or those appearing on our new Website.

One thing you might be able to help with are weighbridges, in "Items of Interest" in Folder " WEIGHBRIDGE" it is empty so if you have any that would be a great help.

Thanx once again for your interest and support as always.

Kind regards

Richard J

Brian Nixon and myself are very grateful to Glenn A for making his photo collection available to us to enlarge our New Website for RhB Modellers.

His photos are now appearing ie Modern Locos and we would welcome any material from other Forum members who would like to share their photos of the RhB either in real time or from their own modelling.

Thanks again Glenn.
