Photographer's Note

Bergbahn Rheineck-Walzenhausen is one of the most original railway lines in Switzerland. It's a rack-and-adhesion line rising from shore of Bodensee to surrounding hills in Walzenhausen. Length of line is about 2 km. Maximum gradient of the line is 25%, and it has very rare rail gauge of 1200 mm. The railway has only one piece of motive power, this electric rail car from 1958.

Since 2006 Bergbahn Rheineck-Walzenhasen has been part of Appenzeller Bahnen group, although it is geographically separated from rest of the network.
