ESNG Cha(I)rman Allan is as habitual in his holidays as I am – Switzerland and trains. As last year, I have a received a series of emails describing his adventures….
First day of our holiday in Lauterbrun. On turning up at the Hotel Oberland, and after being greeted by Mark and Ursula (the management), was given an envelope that was left by Benson (Peter & Yvonne Bretts dog from Winco).
Starting the holiday the way they mean to carry on…. The second photo is the view from the hotel. The weather looks similar to Somerset.
Next, the rear of a rather fine preserved steam loco….
Came over here by postbus from Meiringen via Grimsel Pass. On way up we had low cloud/must but once over the summit on the way down to the Rhone Valley it was brilliant sunshine.
Saw this DFB loco there but did not travel on train as it waits here for nearly two hours and it was expensive.
Model or full size????
