The small green cogwheel locomotive He 2/2 # 51 built in 1909 (!) is shunting the brandnew cogwheel car for the Jungfraubahn, rolling on auxiliary bogies, into the shed of the WAB.

this because the JB line has 1000 mm gauge, but is linked to the main road network only by the 800 mm gauge WAB line, so any new stock has to run on auxiliary bogies (something like this) to be delivered.

Although there are roads to the Kleine Scheidegg, these are narrow and closed in winter (when they are used for skiers), so the WAB line is the best way to transport new trains.

**********

The ETR 470.001 has received a new livrery, so likely will sister units 4, 6, 7, 8. SBB units 2, 3 and 5 does not exist anymore, while #9 is still apparently in working order. Some say it would be nice to keep it as an historic vehicle, others that CD would like to reuse parts (including one cab coach) of an SBB ETR 470 to repair one of its Class 680 Pendolino trains which has been heavily damaged hitting a truck. Both the 470s and 680s although different belong to the same family of trains.

Test run of the new doubledeck Intercity train "Twindexx Swiss Express" RABe 502 # 203 from Bombardier for the SBB. The train circulated from Fribourg to Lausanne for testing of the new WAKO, a mechatronic solution designed to compensate the natural roll movement of a carbody. The train is running through the vineyards between Grandvaux and Bossière with Lake Geneva in the background.

A regional train stands under the famous Lausanne station canopy. It is hauled by a Re 4/4 I built in 1948, from the first Re 4/4 I sub-series 10001-10026.

Georg Trüb, March 14, 2016, Brig
View of Brig, transport hub in the Upper Valais, at night, with the passenger station (left) and the freight yard (right). From the Lötschberg mountain route, the "Lötschberger" RegioExpress 4281 from Bern winds along the hillside down to the station. From track 1 an ETR 610 of the SBB leaves as EuroCity 36 from Milan to Geneva towards Visp. On track 4 and 7 there are Intercity trains of the SBB visible. In the foreground, the light traces of a train can be seen, which is being put away in the sidings from track 3. Right of the railway tracks the Rhone (or the Rotten, as the river is called in the German speaking upper Valais), and on the other side of the river the city Naters. Up on the hillside are the lights of Mund and Birgisch villages.

This might be the only rack railway in the world operating car shuttle trains: Since in winter there is no road alternative, there is a car shuttle train over the Oberalp Pass from Andermatt to Sedrun and back, running three times a day. As drivers can't stay in their cars, the train also has a passenger car.

A Pilatus Bahnen railcar is headed down to Alpnachstad. This picture was shot from the Matthorn (not to be confused with the Matterhorn), a nearby peak.

The other side of the mountain is quite steep, with a great view of the Swiss plateau (actually a hilly terrain, not a plain). Thus even if the mountain is not high (2100 m) the difference with its base is (the lake is at 434 m).

Also a perfect example of Swiss connected transports. One can do a round trip Luzern Hbf. - Pilatus - Luzern Hbf. with trolleybus + 2 cableways + rack railway + train/boat.

It is quite uncommon to be able to do a round trip through such an inaccessible place!

...then from Luzern Hbf take an S3 to Arth-Goldau, go up the Rigi, back down on the other side to Vitznau, and get back to Luzern with a boat, possibly an old steamer in regular service...

I call it the "Luzern 8" (did it in one day ).
