Afternoon All,

The latest nostalgic video on my YouTube channel might be of interest to those interested in Swiss railways. It starts off at Luzern Hbf. with shots of a variety of trains coming and going on both the standard gauge and metre gauge tracks. The metre gauge trains are those of the Brünigbahn which goes over the Brünig Pass to Interlaken. This was still part of the SBB in those days, but it is now privatised and is known as the Zentralbahn.

The action then moves to the Luzern - Küssnacht am Rigi line outside the Verkehrshaus (Transport Museum) where special steam hauled trains were operating as part of the SBB 150 celebrations - it was 150 years since the opening of the Schweizerische Nord Bahn (Swiss Northern Railway), nicknamed the 'Spanisch Brötli Bahn', between Zürich and Baden in 1847.

I hope you like it:
