Our regular holiday interlude – 4

Today’s weather forecast…..

After another heavy thunderstorm yesterday evening it has been cooler today. We wnt to Gstaad via Inteerlaken and Zweisimmer. At Gstaad we took the post bus over Col de Pillon to Les Diablerets. From there it was train all the way back changing at Aigle, Laussanne, Berne and Interlaken. When we got back to Lauterbrunnen it was raining so took post bus one stop up the hill. Writing this on our balcony while another thunderstorm takes place.


Zweisimmen. Allan must have got a bit peckish….

Le Sepey



And trains….

Third evening running thunder, lightning and rain. Luckily just got back to the hotel tonight before it started.

To railway photos – it could have been a lot better if I was not eating a salad while waiting for a train at Aigle.  Missed photos of a shunting loco towing one of SBB new double deck sets. As they are not fully available to work at the moment they’re parked up all over the place. Also missed a freight and a light loco. To make things worse the SBB self propelled track coach caught me out at Lusanne.

Photos taken at Zweisimmen. Note the two of the gauge changer they have installed, to get from metre to standard gauge.  Try that in Nm!!!


And more rain. Switzerland is obviously too hot or too wet….
