Remarks & Notes 
Forchbahn (Forch railway) descends from Hegibach towards the downtown of Zurich. Between Stadelhofen and Rehalp, the Forchbahn trains use the tracks of the tram system, owned by the Verkehrsbetriebe Zürich (VBZ), which are electrified at 600 V DC and are largely situated in the street. Between these two points, Forchbahn trains serve intermediate tram stops at Kreuzplatz (where tram route 15 diverges), Hegibachplatz and Balgrist.[1] At Rehalp tram route 11 has its terminus, and the Forchbahn trains enter the line's separate Rehalp stop. Here they join the Forchbahn proper, which is electrified on the overhead system at 1200 V DC.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
