CH22: Cogwheel to Kleine Scheidegg

A view from the train station at Grindelwald. This station serves two lines. The one seen here goes towards Männlichen [or Kleine Scheidegg to be exact] and this particular line is operated by the Wengernalpbahn. The summit of Männlichen can be reached by a cable car or by hiking. I would like to point out the rack in between the rails, used by the cogwheel train that employs it to negotiate the steep gradient. 


The other line [not seen here] is behind me and is operated by the Berneroberlandbahn, providing connections to Interlaken.

All that transportation hardware makes an interesting counterpoint to to gorgeous panorama behind, Ayush.

These houses look like the houses we make with a miniature railroad at home.
I love the scene.
