I am the creator of the website Minas Gerais Railways concerning to the railroads in the state of Minas Gerais, in the southeast Brazil. My intention is 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 the attention of many railfans and train lovers around the world to watch unusual and interesting trains, locomotives and rolling stocks here, specially those who like to watch heavy haul trains.
The website have guided many railfans to find the correct locations for photography and filming. People who need information on history, locomotive rooster, stations and yard codes, maps, bridges, tunnels and other kind of data can find in my website a dependable guide. The website has more than 13,000 photos, many videos and data and also have links to my work in other free websites like Flickr, Proboard and Tumblr.
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. . The annual cost is about U$ 500.00 (five hundred dolars) and due to the economic crisis it is getting difficult to me to renew my subscription each year. 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 without patronage. The crisis is affecting so many people in Brazil that I can not find who can help me to keep the site running. So I decided to call the railfans worldwide and other people sensible to the railroad preservation, photography and history to keep this website active.
Please, visit the my website in the link below to see my job. It is necessary to do a login. It is free to everybody.
Thank you for your attention
