Actually the most unusual thing I remember was the standard BLS ride back to Neuchatel where the train stopped at a dead end in the middle of nowhere and switched directions. Is this the standard route to travel down the mountains?
Yes, that is the legendary Chambrelien. It is a real throw back to the early days of railways in mountainous regions. It's still great fun to experience, but I can remember back to the days when the loco even had to run round the train.
