Remarks & Notes 
Ge 6/6 II # 703 "St.Moritz is pulling freight 5151 from Landquart to Pontresina over the Landwasser viaduct, with a typical load: log for export via the Bernina line to Italy, construction material for the Engadine and transfer of vintage passenger cars. The yellow open observation car and the yellow Bernina line car were needed for the steamtrain with G 3/4 # 11 the following day from Samedan to Davos and back. During the month of September, the viaduct was "adorned" with huge flags (10 x 10 metres) of Switzerland, the cantons of Basel-Landschaft, Basel-Stadt and Graubünden, which refer to an advertising campaign by Graubünden Ferien, the RhB and other partners. Guests from the two Basel half-cantons received various discounts this month in hotels, for consumption in restaurants, rides on the RhB, for mountain railway rides, etc. In the upper part of the picture, you can see two overhead wire poles. They are standing on the line Filisur-Davos Wiesen-Davos Platz.
