★ Sissach - Läufelfingen - Olten: Cab ride on the original line between Basel & Olten

Today we're travelling with a special passenger train used for training train personell. For this purpose we're taking the old route between Basel and olten, which in my opinion is much more attractive than the tunnel between Tecknau & Olten. This route is still used by a regional train, even though only 20% of the operating costs are covered by ticket sales. The change over to a bus service has been in consideration for more than 30 years, however a recent vote fell in favour of the train. The line is also used during maintenance works in the base tunnel. The line was originally double tracked as can be seen in tunnels and on bridges. The Hauenstein Scheiteltunnel was the first tunnel through a mountain in Switzerland. Hope you enjoy! If you'd like to donate, please click the following link.
