The Rhaetian Railway   by John Fissler


The Rhätische Bahn (RhB) is the extensive metre gauge network of the Graubünden canton of Switzerland where it is second only in mileage to the Swiss Federal Railway (SBB). This stunning network includes the UNESCO listed Albula and Bernina lines featuring the highest open air railway crossing of the Alps as well as the Rheinschlucht.

The digital presentation by club member John Fissler, a professional engineer who worked for British Rail and successor companies for 41 years mainly in the signal and telecommunications field, took an in-depth look at RhB operations as well as some behind the scenes matters, and featured steam, heritage and modern traction.  He showed some stunning slide pictures and awesome video footage.
