Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders/5(3). Around the time I obtained my SBB Deh 4/6, I came across a copy of ‘Metre Gauge Railways in South and East Switzerland, by John Marshall. In this book the author briefly described the proposed Grimselbahn, and the Sources section pointed me to the ‘Schweizerische Bauzeitung’.

This is where the idea for the model started to form. The SBB/CFF/FFS system is standard gauge. Most other railways are either standard gauge or metre gauge, and some have sections of both. Various other gauges are used. The Rhätische Bahn and the Matterhorn-Gotthard Bahn together form an extensive metre gauge system with through workings between the two lines.

Electrification. You could try "Metre Gauge Railways in South and East Switzerland" by John Marshall - it was a print  but still fairly easily available via Amazon and other places. Can recommend this too. The Rhätischebahn operates an extensive electrified metre gauge system in the Canton of Graubünden in south-east Switzerland.

Its lines run through spectacular Alpine scenery, linking upmarket resorts to the SBB system at Landquart and Chur. Most passenger trains are still locomotive hauled and there is some freight traffic.

The Rhätische Bahn (RhB) is the longest metre-gauge railway in Switzerland, linking Arosa, Disentis, Davos, St. Moritz in the high Alps, and Tirano in Italy with Chur, a rail junction with the SBB.

Welcome to "Switzerland Railway Pictorial - SBB and RhB", an image-rich feature of some of my photos of two of Switzerland's fascinating railway systems. The SBB is the Swiss Federal Railways, the national railway company of Switzerland, whereas the RhB (Rhätische Bahn) is the independent metre gauge.

A good reference book is "Metre Gauge Railways in South & East Switzerland" by John Marshall, published by David & Charles, ISBN It is out of print, but you may be able to find one at one of the second hand book web sites like this to name but one.

The metre gauge is used in aro kilometres (59, mi) of tracks around the world. Historically it was utilized by European colonial powers such as the French, British and German empires. In Europe, large metre-gauge networks remain in use in Switzerland, northern Spain and in many European towns with urban trams, although most metre-gauge local railways in France, Germany and Belgium closed.

Apart the famous "Rhaetian Railways" and the famous Gotthardbahn, there other, less known railways off the "beaten track" that are worth a visit and that see steam trains from time to time. One amazing thing about Switzerland with its popular trains is the virtual absence of hardore-photographers.

This is a list of mountain railways in operation in Switzerland. It includes railways that overcome steep gradients (over 5%) or whose culminating point is over m (2, ft) above sea level.

See Archives.The cost of railway track is directly proportional to the width of its gauge. If the fund available is not sufficient to construct a standard gauge, a metre gauge or a narrow gauge is preferred rather than to have no railways at all.
