Remarks & Notes 
The only 2 coalfired operational steamlocomotives of the Brienz Rothorn Bahn on a picture (the company uses 4 lightoil fired steamlocomotives too). H 2/3 # 6, built in 1933 by SLM Winterthur is shoving cars 16 and 26 up the 25.0 % grade between Planalp and Brienzer Rothorn, while H 2/3 # 5 from 1891 is following on sight distance. # 5 was delivered to the Wengernalpbahn by SLM Winterthur and came to the BRB in 1912, when the WAB was electrified. In the background the Brienzersee and Blüemlisalp mountain. The locomotive is decorated with swiss flags because it's national day today!
