Gais - Altstaetten should be near the top of John's list.
In my opinion it is the only section of the Appenzeller Bahnen remaining with any 'character' - the rest is still good for scenic views but the 'supertram' type vehicles are rather 'urban' in style and not as characterful as traditional 'typical Swiss metre gauge railway train' style vehicles were.
May be true for Trogen - St. Gallen - Appenzell and Frauenfeld - Wil, but "not always" for Rorschach - Heiden and Gossau - Wasserauen. Heiden on sunny days sees old open stock being pushed and in Gossau the Stadler three car units may get additional coaches and driving trailers of older build or even open plattform Buffet coach attached. Especially interesting when running as Qu├Âllfrisch-Express, promoting a local beer... ;-) Unfortunately no more dates for 2021.
