The Swiss Railways Society was formed in 1980 for the purpose of bringing together those interested in Swiss Railways, but over the years has attracted those with a liking for other forms of transportation such as trams, boats cable cars and funicular railways. Our numbers include many whose technical knowledge is slight but whose love of Switzerland and its railways bring them comfortably into contact with the historically and technically minded member as well as model makers at all levels of experience.

Martin Fisher seeks your assistance
The programme of eight Swiss Travel Guides is due to be completed this year with
the publication of "Basel and North West Switzerland". Emboldened by the success
of these Guides, the Society will be publishing more books about Switzerland over
the next few years. The first few additional titles are already in the pipeline but
I am writing to seek your assistance with a book that is not scheduled for publication
until March 2016. That book will be about Swiss Post Buses and while there is likely
to be a bit about the history of the organisation and a description of the fleet
the main object will be to describe a selection of routes operated by the company.
There are some obvious Alpine candidates for inclusion but I would be very grateful
if members could let me know of routes they have enjoyed over the years, whether
in the Alps or in less well-
