Remarks & Notes 
In the summer of 1994, the largest national federal camp "Cuntrast 94" of the Pfadi Schweiz with more than 20,000 participants took place in the Napf area during 2 weeks. This gave the participating transport companies in this area a "traffic of the century". The picture of 25 July shows the arrival of participants from north-eastern Switzerland. Starting in Romanshorn, train no. 33044 with 11 cars travelled via Zurich-Olten-Langenthal to Huttwil, where it was split up. There the rear 5 BLS cars of this picture were removed and taken over by the Re 4/4 III No. 113 "Thun" of EBT for the continuation of the journey to Sumiswald-Grünen as train 32151. This locomotive, built in 1983, was involved in an accident at Crossrail services in Brig in 2010 and is the only Re 4/4 III of the former EBT group that no longer exists. The picture was taken in the 25 per mil descent just below the Griesbach stop (in the background on the right).
