Beautifully restored diesel shunter Tm II # 813 of association Mikado 1244 in Brugg (AG). The vehicle was built in 1956 by Saurer for the SBB, weighs 10 tons, has 87 HP and a max. velocity of 45 km/h. It can pull up to 300 tons on level track with 5 km/h. More than 250 of this shunters were built by RACO and Saurer companies from 1950 to 1968.

Isn't it a bit too much to restore shunter locos?

What is next - restore track inspection vehicles?

You worried that some of your tax money went into this?

These vehicles are restored by volunteers, using money raised through voluntary contributions.
I don't see the problem with people who want to preserve something actually doing so.

In this case this tractor is owned by an association that owns and operates several big historic locomotives. Having a shunter is useful for them anyway, so why not have a historic one?

More likely money that should have been paid in tax but was placed on a Swiss account, generated interest and yadda yadda..

The link is interesting, but I think RhB has been available on Google Street View since early 2013.

Ok, I'm sorry. I've just seen that they updated some roads and then I came across the railway lines. Didn't notice that before.

Georg Trüb, May 27, 2015, Filisur
Two push pull commuter trains with electric railcars Be 4/4 # 512 and 513 are crossing the 65 meter high Landwasser viaduct near Filisur. The chartered train came from Davos and was running to Chur, for participants of the "4. Bündner Bildungstag" which took place in Davos this day. These trains usually do not drive on this route.
