Remarks & Notes 
The most popular seats on the Rigi Bahn are probably at the front on the open platform of car B # 14, which was built in 1902 by the Rigi Bahn in its own workshop in Vitznau and has 60 seats. The car travels downhill together with the cogwheel railcar Bhe 2/4 # 2 built in 1937 (when the line from Vitznau to Rigi Kulm was electrified) as train CC 1238 at Freibergen. In the background, the typical rock formations of the Rigi are visible, made of slightly reddish "Nagelfluh" (conglomerate). On the right, a huge Swiss flag with an edge length of 31 meters hangs on the rock face. In the last few years it was put up for the Swiss National Day on August 1, but this year it was already put up in mid-May for the 150th anniversary of the Rigi Railway (may 21th 2021).
