SBB (Schweizerische Bundesbahnen
The SOB operates two independent regional rail networks in the pre-Alps area. One network is located in the canton of Schwyz and connects Arth-Goldau with Pfäffikon SZ and Wädenswil with Einsiedeln, where the SOB trains cope with gradients of up to 2%. The other network is located in Northeastern Switzerland and connects Romanshorn with Nesslau in Toggenburg.
The SBB line in the Toggenburg between Wil SG and Wattwil is served by trains from Thurbo and is considered an extended line to Nesslau, which in turn belongs to the SOB. Today, however, there are no continuous features.
The two SOB networks are connected by Voralpenexpress. The express trains take the route from Lucerne via Arth-Goldau, Rapperswil and Wattwil to St. Gallen. At the time of filming, the Voralpenexpress went to Romanshorn. The Rickentunnel, which is run by the Voralpen-Express - it is the longest straight railway tunnel in Switzerland - belongs to the SBB, whereas the Wasserfluh and Bruggwald tunnels are the two longest tunnels of the SOB; The 3 largest viaducts are located between Degersheim and St. Gallen. The pre-alpine region is characterized by hilly landscapes and partly has the character of a mountain range. which is why there are a large number of artificial structures on the section between Kaltbrunn and Wittenbach on the difficult topography.
