October 27th N.B. Members attending the Christmas Meal need to book and pay at this meeting.
The Rhätische Bahn (RhB) Revisited (change of subject)
John Fissler continued his presentation on the RhB concentrating
mainly on routes and material that time did not permit at the meeting on 24th
March 2017. This included video footage of steam and electric traction.
RhB’s extensive metre gauge network in the Graubünden canton
of Switzerland is second only in mileage to the Swiss Federal Railway (SBB) in
the country. 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.
We were impressed by the magnificent scenery, splendid photography, and knowledgeable presentation.
