Re: Steam traction engines




I went to a few in Romanshorn, where it was held with in conjunction with the Deutche Bahn and the DE postal service trains.

If the "kids" are keen, and if you ( or know of anybody that has ) a GA, you might get a reduced rate to co-pilot an SBB train, with first class travel to / from home included.

Führerstandsfahrt: CHF 200.– günstiger.

Sind Sie gerne ganz vorne dabei? Dann buchen Sie jetzt eine Führerstandsfahrt von Arth-Goldau nach Locarno oder von Zürich nach Lausanne. Unsere erfahrenen Lokführer weihen Sie in die Welt der Eisenbahn und Bahntechnik ein.



Mit diesem Gutschein zahlen Sie nur CHF 490.– statt CHF 690.–. Zum Abfahrtsort und nach Hause reisen Sie 1. Klasse – kostenlos.

Steam Railway Engines VVT St. Sulpice

Steam traction engines were used on farms to thresh corn.

Steam railway engines are conserved in many places in Switzerland.

The nearest one to you is at St Sulpice Ne, between Pontarlier (France) and Neuchâtel CH,
"Vapeur Val de Travers" http://www.vvt.ch/ The site has a limited English section, the French
pages are the best.

Normally the club is very active, but this summer the SBB are renovating the tracks between
their engine shed and Neuchâtel, so there is a limited service.

Steam days are on
13 & 14 August 2011
10 & 11 September 2011
1 & 2 October 2011

On these weekends there is a 30 minute journey (& return) offered for Sfr 20,--
