Five years ago I created the website Minas Gerais Railways dedicated to the railroads in the state of Minas Gerais, in the southeast Brazil. My intention is to share good photos and information on the railroads that exists here from the past to the present. Minas is the state with the biggest rail network in Brazil and have attracted many railfans around the world to watch unusual and interesting locomotives and trains, specially those that like heavy haull trains. The website have guided many railfans to find the correct locations for photography and filming. Also, those that need information on history, locomotive rooster, station and yard codes, maps, bridges, tunnels and other kind of informations can use the website as a dependable guide. The website has more than 12,000 photos, many videos and data of the railroads in this importante area of Brazil.
At this time, an economic crisis is affecting my country and is getting dificult to me to renew the subscription with Ning Creators to keep the website running and to do an upgrade to an updated version that can provide me with more space for photos and data. So the website need patronage to survive. The anual 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 with Ning Creators. 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 here 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 to keep my website active.
