Remarks & Notes 
Diesel locomotive Bm 4/4 II # 18451 of SBB Historic from 1939 with a photo train on the never electrified former SBB line from Etzwilen to Singen, crossing the Rhine river on the 25 meter high and 254 meter long Hemishofer bridge, which was built in 1875. Under the bridge the motor vessel "MS Schaffhausen" of the Schifffahrtsgesellschaft Untersee und Rhein (URh) on the way from Schaffhausen to Kreuzlingen. The meeting of train and ship was not arranged, the train slowed down only a little bit, when the driver realised the situation. On this line, similar trains were common in the old days.
