Brig MGB (Matterhorn-Gornergrat-Bahn, the Zermatt-Disentis line created from the merger of former BVZ and FO companies) station is still in the forecourt of the SBB/CFF station. A track layout similar to the one used by RhB in Chur for the Arosa line.

Waiting for the peak hour, two Re450 push-pull trains stay idle under the snow on the western sidings of the Baden SBB/CFF station. These trains operate the S6 S-Bahn line (Baden-Zürich Hbf-Uetikon).

Just a short railway video I put on Youtube some time ago, re-posted on Posterous to check Youtube interactions. Place is Froissy, France, near Amiens on the 60cm touristic line. This was a special event to celebrate the closure of the line for the winter season
