Photographer's Note

It was a great & sunny September day on the top mountain railway station of Rigi Kulm (1800M). The peak of Mt Rigi is only a short walk from here. It's great to be above the cloud and to see the lakes of Luzern below through the clouds. Impressive views of the surrounding mountain ranges too. Switzerland has always been good to me ... always welcoming me with fantastic weather for walking & photography.

Take a look at the toothed racks in the middle of the railway tracks. These interlock with cogwheels fitted below the locomotives. The cogwheel railways from Arth-Goldau and Vitznau operate up to the Rigi Kulm the whole year.

Have a nice weekend. Regards.
