Remarks & Notes 
The 0-4-0 T steamlocomotive # 6 "St.Gallen/Widnau" will soon cross the 260 meter long Wiesenrain road and rail bridge over the Rhine between Widnau/Switzerland and Lustenau/Austria, passing the customs house/border station on the Swiss side. The 25 kilometer long former service railroad of the International Rhine Regulation (IRR) with 75 cm track gauge and electrified with 750 V direct current since 1946, has been operated by the "Rhein-Schauen" (Rheinbähnle) association from the Lustenau/Austria depot since 2006. The railroad was operated by the IRR from 1895 to 2006, mainly for the transportation of stones from the Kadelberg quarry towards Lake Constance for the construction of dams. This was the last day that the track over the bridge was used.
