Remarks & Notes 
On August 9, 2022, it was 175 years to the day since the first Swiss railroad began operations in 1847. The Schweizerische Nord Bahn (Swiss Northern Railway SNB) ran on the 23 kilometers between Baden and Zurich and is popularly known as the "Spanish Brötli Railway". The anniversary was celebrated with invited guests with a special train from Baden to Zurich and an event at the Zurich Altstetten repair center. From Zürich main station track 10, the "Spanisch-Brötli-Bahn" train, entirely built as replica in 1947, brought the VIP-guests to the Altstetten repair center, a distance of about 3 kilometers. The entirely hand braked train consisted of D 1/3 # 1 "Limmat", red first class car A # 1, yellow second class car B # 22, brown open third class cars with wooden benches C # 41 and # 42 and in the rear the green third class car C # 33. The cars are based in the SBB Historic shed in Olten, the locomotive in the Bahnpark Brugg AG. On this photo, the train is backing into track A10 of Zürich main station for the following trip to the Altstetten repair center as shunting movement. The steam locomotive operation had been approved despite severe drought and wild fire danger, as the entire trip took place within a wide track field.
