Insight into daily life behind the scenes of a commercial steam railway

For anyone interested in a little of the history and view behind the scenes, of the Brienz Rothorn Railway, consider taking our Workshops Tour.
Our tours are about one hour in length, questions and interest however often extend this estimate somewhat.  During the tour you will learn about the history of the railway, from its construction through to the present day. Details of the infrastructure and of course the individual locomotives and wagons will be revealed in as much detail as you wish to ask for. Don’t be under the impression though that this tour is aimed purely at the male audiences, it isn’t, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone who has an enquiring mind.
This is a tour of the workshops and engine shed of the premier steam railway in Switzerland. If one considers the fact that the Brienz Rothorn Railway is also 100% rack adhesion, this is a very rare opportunity indeed and worthy of any visitor’s time.
