Summary of locomotives

Dampfromantik pur! Lassen Sie sich vom schnörkellosen Charme des urtümlichen Maschinenbaus verzaubern.

During 200 years of steam locomotive history and development, all advancements have been based on the basic principles laid down and agreed upon in 1825. These fundamental rules are to be seen in the steam locomotives employed on the BRB, although we operate 3 generations of steam traction with 105 years of development between them the techniques, methods and skills demanded of our footplate crews are the same as in 1825. These skills are used today to convey your train safely on Switzerland’s premier mountain railway.

Welcome on board!
