Back in the days.... In 1997, Sisikon at Lake Lucerne is still free of any noise protecting walls. In 1997, SBB is not spilt up between "Cargo" and "Personenverkehr". In 1997, locomotives can be seen in front of all kind of trains. In 1997, there were no italian built trains running over Gotthard route.
In 1997, Re 6/6 11686 is pulling it's Eurocity with italian coaches from Zürich to Milano, passing Sisikon and soon will climb the northern ramp of Gotthard.
