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 entrance tracks from direction Thalwil, Zürich Altstetten and Zürich Oerlikon. 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. A highspeed tilting train RABe 503 "Astoro" of the SBB is running from the sidings to the underground departure track 33, to run as Eurocity 99 to Munich in 4 hours and 2 minutes. Since change of timetable in december 2020, this connection is made by electric tilting trains RABe 503/ETR 610 of the SBB and the trains are departing and arriving in Zürich underground tracks 31 to 34.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
