Remarks & Notes 
Deep in the wood of the steep Rigi slope, on the line of the former Arth-Rigi-Bahn (ARB), you can find this truss bridge over the Dossenbach, built in 1875. The electric cogwheel snow blower locomotive He 2/3 # 8, built in 1930, is running up the mountain as timetabled train 153 from Arth-Goldau to Rigi Kulm. The snow blower unit was removed this spring, so the pushing weight could be increased in summertime to push two long passenger cars up the 20.0 % grade. Here are cars B # 32 (72 seats, built in 1875 as car # 5) and B # 33 (72 seats, built in 1875 as well). So both cars and the bridge are 146 years old now, but in excellent condition!
