1th of august is Swiss National Day, the trains of the Rigibahnen are adorned with flags of Switzerland, cantons of Lucerne and Schwyz. An there is "Rigi Historic XXL Day", with most of the historic vehicles running up and down the mountain. Even the snow blower locomotive He 2/3 # 8, built in 1930 by SLM and MFO for the Arth-Rigi-Bahn (ARB) ran several trains this day. Here the unique vehicle is coming down the mountain empty between Rigi Kulm and Rigi Staffel, running to Rigi Staffel only, with cars B # 35 of 1899 and red B # 5 of 1871. The ejection chimney of the blower unit was specially moved to the center position (normally it is directed to the left or right) in order to place the large Swiss flag nicely. The blower wheels were temporarily in operation for show purposes during the trip!
