Remarks & Notes 
In spring and autumn, when passenger numbers are lower, the Gornergratbahn runs at 48-minute intervals, with only two train compositions on the move, crossing each other on the double track between Riffelalp and Riffelboden as scheduled. The journey time from Zermatt to Gornergrat is 33 minutes at a maximum speed of 28 km/h on a 20.0 % gradient, while 44 minutes are required for the descent. Train 243 (left) with Bhe 4/8 # 3053 and Bhe 4/6 # 3083 in multiple control uphill meets train 240 (right) with Bhe 4/8 # 3052 and Bhe 4/6 # 3082 heading downhill. In the background right is Dom, Täschhorn and Unterrothorn. The photographer is standing on a snow cover that is still about 1/2 meter thick.
