This may seem a bit daft but I'm building a small SWISS layout (RhB) but I would like a little help
please I have 2 short sideings to fill with some type of loading or unloading points at the planing stage all of the station
sideings were all planed out but for some reason the two sideings were marked as WIP? if anyone has any photo's
it would be a big help I've looked at one or two DVDs of the RhB but sadly they only show made up trains they seemed
to be a number of wagons of wood and cement again anything would be a big help before I finish sorry to go on so
but did the RhB ever use standard gauge transporter wagons??

Hello William,

I don't really understand just what you are asking for in your post, but there are lots of pictures of all aspects of the RhB at Rail Fan Europe. Click on:

Enter -> Pictures -> the Swiss flag -> Narrow Gauge -> RhB

and there is a set of directories with pictures.

I'm sorry I was not very clear about what I'm looking for I was hopeing to find out about RhB unloading
points do they use a overhead crane to unload wood or would cement be unloaded in to road wagons that was the type
of thing I was looking for I've looked at the Railfaneurope site which is very good and which gave me a number of
idea's but I'm still short of photos of the type of gear they would unload with sorry to be a pain

If only you had posted a day earlier
. By the time you posted I was coming down out of the Voshe (sp?) mountains west of Colmar on my way to Graubunden. If I had had known of your requirement, I could have taken some pictures specially for you. I may still have something of use in the shots that I did take but it's going to be a while before I get them uploaded. Now that I know you are looking for something, I will watch out for anything useful.

In the meantime, here's my recollection of what I did see on the RhB. The Rhine valley between Landquart and Reichenau-Tammins has a number of large industries along it. There is a massive saw mills / wood burning enterprise at Donnat/EMS a few miles before Rheichenau.

Once into the mountainous valleys a reasonable number of the stations, each the small ones have short sidings (say for 3 or 4 wagons). There didn't appear to be much in the way of special unloading gear at these places.

At Thusis I did see a "piggy back" wagon with a standard gauge tank wagon seated on top of it.

Missed this one before!
Right I'd recommend some websites first to look at for pics that might help and I'll search my collection of pics to see what I have. Will probably be Thursday before I get to sort it out.

Kibri make models of this sort of equipment.
