Remarks & Notes 
This picture could be taken about 75 years ago....HG 3/4 # 4 of the Furka Oberalp Bahn (FO) is entering the cogwheel section below Gletsch down to Oberwald, while on the street a FIAT Balilla 508 (1935) and a FIAT Balilla 508 3 marce (1932) are rolling downwards. In the background Hotel Belvedere on the Furka pass road and Galenstock mountain on the left. Only the missing Rhone glacier (now not visible any more from this position) says that the picture is from nowadays.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
