I created the website Minas Gerais Railways (MGR) concerning to the railroads in the state of Minas Gerais, in the southeast Brazil. My intention was to have a space in the internet where people could share good photos and data on the railroads in this part of the country. Minas Gerais has the biggest rail network in Brazil and have attracted many railfans around the world to watch unusual and interesting trains, locomotives and rolling stocks, specially those fans that like to watch heavy haul trains.
The website have guided many railfans to find the correct locations for photography and filming. Also, those who need information on history, locomotive rooster, stations and yard codes, maps, bridges, tunnels and other kind of data can find in the MGR a dependable guide. The website has more than 13,000 photos, many videos and data on the railroads in this importante area of Brazil.
At this time, an economic crisis is affecting my country and is getting difficult to me to renew the subscription with Ning Creators to keep the website running and also to do an upgrade to a new version that can provide more space for photos and data. So I decided that the website needed patronage to survive. The annual cost is only U$ 300.00 (three hundred dolars), but due to the economic crisis it is getting difficult to me to renew my subscription alone. It will be a pity to lose so many picture and data for just a few money needed. I have no condition to maintain the site at this time. The crisis is affecting so many people in Brazil that nobody can help me to keep the site running. So I would like to call on the railfans and other people sensible to the railroad preservation, photography and history around the world to keep this website active.
Please, visit the MGR website in the link below to see our job. It is necessary to do a login to prevent hackers.
Thank you for your attention
