Remarks & Notes 
Since friday march 26th, Zurich has a new hotspot for railroad fans and photographers, the 160 meter long Negrelli footbridge across the tracks of the Zurich main station. The view goes towards the concourse with the city and the buildings of the ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in the background. TGV 2N2 # 4717 of the Lyria company is leaving Zürich main station as TGV 9230 to Basel-Mulhouse-Belfort-Paris Gare de Lyon. The doubledeck commuter train "DPZ+" is stabled as reserve near the platforms. The footbridge is named after Alois von Negrelli, who lived from 1799 to 1858. Negrelli came from Trentino, which was part of the Austrian Empire during his lifetime. Negrelli's main connection with Zurich was the project management for the first Swiss railroad, the so-called Spanish-Brötli Railway from Zurich to Baden. In addition, Negrelli was general inspector of the Austrian state railroads and planner of the Suez Canal.
