Remarks & Notes 
Exactly 150 years after the inauguration ceremony of the first cogwheel mountain railway in Europe, from Vitznau on the shore of the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake Lucerne) to the Rigi (exactly Rigi Staffelhöhe), there was a celebration for invited guests with this steamtrain with car B # 5 (built 1871) and steamlocomotive H 1/2 # 7 (built in 1873 by SLM Winterthur).
