I have reported it a couple of times but it is still stuck on 3rd Feb 2010.

I've just filled in the defect box and reported it too, so let's see if anything happens!
I am a regular user of the BRB webcam during their operating season and whenever I have reported a defect it usually gets fixed within a couple of days.

I have reported it a couple of times but it is still stuck on 3rd Feb 2010.

It covers Landquart station and very entertaining when working.

Just hoping someone out there might have more luck contacting the operators.


Re: Wassen

Another well known spot accessible from the same bus is Gurtnellen. Take the bus to Gurtnellen Wiler, walk down through the village, past the church and across the river. Turn left alongside the railway line then pass under the line and climb along the otherside taking the lower of the 2 paths (5-10 min walk from bus-stop).

Here are a couple of examples of the view from here:
Looking towards Erstfeld: http://europeanrailwaysbybantam61668.fotopic.net/p66928954.html
Looking towards Goschenen: http://europeanrailwaysbybantam61668.fotopic.net/p66928949.html

I've haven't tried this location in Winter yet (planned very shortly) but have seen some so imagine it is accessible, Iwould imagine the light to be similar to that at Wassen.

What you saw, was (as I wrote) ABt 942. I know, ABt 941-943 and
ABe 130 001-010 are not so easy to distinguish. See photos:

For the photo spot on the curve just short of the Wattinger tunnel walk past the station on your right and a turning appears on the left which dives under the motorway and once through the tunnel you are virtually there. Take care not to upset the farmer.

Maybe it isn't as hard to reach is I think but it looks like it is quite far below the city level of Wassen. The Wassen church now has a little fenced-in "viewing area" facing south to see the trains coming and going down below by the tunnel portal. I really never considered trying to find a path down to the "photo spot."

For the curve

http://www.fionnbarr.com/gallery2/v/Rail/Swiss/Snow/DSC_0258.jpg.html

(Iv'e shown this to illustrate even in heavy snow its accessible) Take the bus to Wassen Dorf. Walk on in the direction of travel for about 10 mins and there is a road leading down to a farm to you left. Head down there and have fun!

Before you get to that turn you have these views on your right:

http://www.fionnbarr.com/gallery2/v/Rail/Swiss/Snow/DSC_0221.jpg.html

It basically just south of the station.

If the weather is good (iv'e only done it in summer) you can cut the Gothard trail here and hike back down to Erstfeld. All sorts of possibilities:

http://www.fionnbarr.com/gallery2/v/Rail/Swiss/Local_Trains/Hols07_240.jpg.html

http://www.fionnbarr.com/gallery2/v/Rail/Swiss/NEW/ICNGothard.jpg.html

However I dont know if this trail is open at that time. Also be aware the valley floor wont get sun and as you descend the lower your light "window" will be.

Another easily reachable area by train is Airolo:

http://www.fionnbarr.com/gallery2/v/Rail/Swiss/Snow/Airolo2.jpg.html

This view a 10 mins walk southwards from the station.

Lots of possibilities, lots of fun!

Finally dont forget the idea of going to Göschenen with the train and continuing with the MGB to Andermatt:

http://www.fionnbarr.com/gallery2/v/Rail/Swiss/Snow/Goschenen10.jpg.html

from the train

and then lots of other possibilities once there.

Looking forward to the results

[RhB] ABe 4/4 III advertising...

The last two red ABe III 55 and 56 get a RE-Power advertisement. 55 has returned from Landquart on 4 Nov 2010
<http://www.schmalspurbahn.ch/filisur/webcam/a101104161632303>

Ge 4/4 II 615 and 617 already show the same advertisement. See the Wikipedia list for up-to-date information about advertisements.
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhaetian_Railway_Ge_4/4_II>
<http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/RhB_ABe_4/4_III>

RE-Power is the new name for Rhaetia Engergie (RE) and the company that will rebuild the Lago Biancho dams to be able to hold 4 m more of water. Poschiavo had recently voted in favour of the project.

Re: WASSEN STATION - BY BUS

These buses are covered with a SwissPass. There are two stops for Wassen; one way on the south end of town and the other right in town. The gravel ramp leading to the church in only about 10 meters north of the bus stop.

Hello. In my experience The buses run an hourly service (I think),
between Erstfeld and Goschenen, so you could approach Wassen from
either direction. I used the bus in January 2010 to get from Erstfeld
to Wassen and return. I have used the same service to travel from
Erstfeld to Goschenen in place of the train. The bus journey is
enjoyable if you don't mind the very sharp bends in the road, and on
several parts of the journey, you travel next to the railway. That
bus service is open all winter as far as im aware.
