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 PAGE:

The #801 / #802 were both commission in 1963. The electric network of the Rhb is prone to damage, especially in winter, when snow needs to be cleared. In the event of above-ground damage, earlier steam locomotives helped; today, the trolley-independent two-axle locomotives 4/4 are used. These universal locos are ideally suited for all imaginable purposes. Thanks to an additional diesel engine, these can operate on the whole RhB regardless of the rail voltage.

As with the prototype, this model can also run without power from overhead. The "two-stroke" loco is ideal for any narrow gauge system.

Power can be changed to come from overhead (select 'O') or rail (select 'S').
