Extra trains are always a bonus; but an unexpected extra using antique equipment is a real treat!
Three weeks ago on our exploration of Swiss railways, Denis McCabe and I were photographing the steeply graded rack railway on the Wengernalbahn near Grindlewald-Grund where the scheduled passenger trains operate on half hour intervals.
In between the regular scheduled trains, we caught a wire train-extra and this passenger extra with heritage equipment.
All in the metaphoric shadow of the Eiger and the Jungfrau, two of the most famous Swiss mountain in the Swiss Bernese Alps.
