SWITZERLAND – First we visit a suburban station on the route to Basel and then we travel to the impressive Limmattal marshalling yard just outside of the City. A wide variety of passenger stock is seen as well as plenty of freight activity. A visit is made to the Rhätischebahn as we call into the busy Reichenau-Tamins station to the west of Chur. With snow on the ground we witness the results of a two-hour stopover with express passenger, S-Bahn local passenger & freight services all seen with a mixture of motive power at the front.
