Remarks & Notes 
In 1945 built by Baldwin, former french railways SNCF, coalfired 2-8-2 "Mikado" steamlocomotive 141 R # 568 (owner Andrew Cook of Wiiliam Cook Rail) is now based at Vallorbe ant operated by association 141R568. This day it made a nice roundtrip through western part of Switzerland, called "Lac Léman et campagne Vaudois" (Lake Geneva and landscape of canton Vaud). The route was from Vallorbe to Lausanne, through the vineyards up to Puidoux-Chexbres, to Romont-Fribourg-Payerne-Moudon-Palézieux-Lausanne back to Vallorbe. With a very impressive black smoke the stoker fired locomotive is running on the 2.0 % grade towards Vallorbe near Arnex. Note the Boxpok wheels on the driving axle only.
