Faces of the BLS at Spiez, Switzerland.

Swiss railways tend to be known by three letter abbreviations of their names.

The initials ‘BLS’ represent the Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon Bahn, a standard-gauge mainline trunk-line with several branches in central western Switzerland.

It was a pleasant evening three weeks ago, when Denis McCabe and I photographed a procession of BLS freight and passenger trains at Spiez. What I found remarkable was the great variety of equipment operated by this colourful Swiss line.

I exposed these photos over the course of an hour using my FujiFilm X-T1.
