    SOME INFO ON THE RhB:
  • The Rhaetian Railway is a Swiss transport company that owns the largest network of all private railway operators in Switzerland. The network is located almost entirely within Graubünden.
  • It serves a number of major tourist destinations, such as St. Moritz and Davos.
  • All RhB lines are 3'-3-3/8" gauge wide and electrified.
  • The network currently contains 84 tunnels and 383 bridges.
  • On August 13, 2014, a passenger train was struck by a landslide and derailed at Tiefencastel, Graubünden. Eleven people were injured.
  • In 1997, the RhB was used as a prototype for the Nord Express in the 20th Century Fox animated film "Anastasia." Several landmarks were also included.

AN ATTEMPT TO TRANSLATE SOME OF THE INFO SHEET:

This steam loco with 3 sets of drivers and a leading axle was built in 1889. With an output of 184kW at 20km/h (13 mph) and a traction rating of 300kg, this loco was certainly not the strongest. Its max speed was 45km/h (or 28mph). However, the cost of 60,000 francs might almost be considered "cheap" today.

The Rhb owned the #1 Rhätia, #2 Prättigau, #3 Davos, #4 Flüela and #5 Engadin. All were scrapped between 1917-1928. The #1 has been restored and now takes special rides on the Rhb.

As usual this model is built exclusively of brass.

These can take a radius of 36cm (about 14").
