In Paris, the Champs-Elysées have been converted into a giant field/garden for two days. More pictures on my Railway Blog (in French).

The Listening Marmot is the mascot of the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad, and a common sight in Montreux MOB station since it was chosen as a livery for the Ge 4/4 #8003. A very successful paint scheme for this serie of powerful mountain locomotives, my favourite with the “Swisscanto Anlagefond” livery of the Ge 4/4 III #647 from RhB.

Show_must_go_on

A very rare occurence: Freddy Mercury’s statue without any admirers around. Time is one o’clock p.m.. Salagnon Island is in the background. The show is going on…

A Bex Salt Mine visitor’s train hauled by a mining tractor is about to enter the Mine du Bouillet tunnel.

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.

By noon on a sunny spring day, standard-gauge BLS RABe 435 “Lötschberger” pauses briefly in Zweisimmen station, Switzerland, to ensure interchange with meter-gauge MOB Golden Pass services to Montreux, before returning to Spiez on a Regio service.
