Remarks & Notes 
Four wheel electric cogwheel locomotive No.12 'Gsteigwiler' (just visible behind her two passenger cars) has just completed the 1,420m ascent from Wilderswil to Schynige Platte, featuring gradients as steep as 1 in 4, and traveling at an almost constant speed of 12km/h. No.12 has been working up and down this mountain since 1914 and has certainly seen much worse weather, but for a visiting Australian this blizzard in the middle of summer was quite a sight!
