Hello Peter,
You don't say which language you are most interested in but from an English
language viewpoint I would strongly recommend the following:
"The Swiss Railways Saga .....150 Years of Swiss Trains" by Hans Peter
Treichler.
published 1996
ISBN 3-905111-16-0
"Bahnpanorama Schweiz" by Harald Nav�
published 1996
ISBN 3-85738054-3
Both books deal with the railways of Switzerland from their conception to
recent times (1996) in words and pictures and should still be available from
a specialist book shop or Amazon.
Although specific to a particular railway another English language book that
I like is:
"The History of the Gotthard Railway" by M.Hardy-Randall
published 1997
ISBN 0-9531841-0-2
This book was published in England and will probably be much harder to
obtain as I think the publisher has ceased trading.
These are just a few of my favourites and I am sure that there are many more
suitable books available in other languages.
Best wishes,
John.

Hi,

The book on the History of the Gotthard Railway is still available
from the author, me, if you wish to order.

On the subject of other books on the Swiss Railways, have you
contacted Midland Counties Publications at
Midlandbooks@compuserve.com. The company publishes a catalogue of
second hand books. that is in stock and also operates a 'wish list'
so that a persom may place an order for specific books when they
become available.

Hope that helps.

I have had good luck with WWW.ALIBRIS.COM when looking for out of print
books. They found me George Drury's "Swiss Rail Guide", and I'm sure
they could help with the titles mentioned here.
