Remarks & Notes 
Because of a disruption (planned haevy trackwork) on the Arlberg line (Austria), the famous Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (VSOE) was diverted via Gotthard-Milan to Venice. The very long (17 cars) and haevy train (about 880 tons) is passing the village of Wassen and crossing the middle Meienreuss bridge on the northern ascent to the Gotthard tunnel. The beautiful VSOE cars have always very clean white roofs!
