Photographer's Note

Locomotive number 7 from 1873 climbing towards Rigi Kulm with a pair of vintage coaches. The line from Vitznau to Rigi Staffelhöhe is the oldest mountain rack railway in Europe, opened in 1871. Final stretch from Staffelhöhe to Rigi Kulm opened two years later.

I don't normally alter my pictures by removing any visible objects. This time however I have cloned out electric wires to achieve appearance of the place before electrification of the railway line in 1937. Soft light is a result of literally being inside clouds near the mountain top.
