Diverse Bahnlinien Ergänzungen I

On this DVD we show railway lines that in no way fit into the previous scheme of "Perren driver's cab rides". This includes a new railway line (Zurich diameter line) or routes that are no longer in commercial operation (Bubikon - Wolfhausen). There are also railway lines that are only used by freight trains or on which there is no official train service (Guttannen - Handeck). We also count the two tram lines of the Glattalbahn (line 10 and line 12) and the route of the m1 Lausanne to the railway lines and show the driver's view on this DVD.

All the films on this DVD are special and exciting. These are lines that are hardly in the public or tourist interest. It goes from marshalling yards to the most remote industrial siding, often not electrified, but driven by diesel traction.

The ride in the driver's cab on the Bubikon - Wolfhausen route is definitely a highlight. The section of the former Uerikon-Bauma-Bahn still exists today and is sometimes used for extra trips, although the branch switch in Bubikon has since been removed. For the film, we had to order a handcar and a presentation vehicle and have it transported to Wolfhausen by truck. We will show you the rerailing of the vehicles in an industrial area and some exterior shots to the starting point in Bubikon. Since the route is rarely used, the tracks are overgrown with bushes and grasses. So the journey leads through pure nature.
