It's 8.40 AM on Rigi Kulm. The cogwheel snowblower locomotive He 2/3 # 8 of the Rigi Bahnen cleared the track up from Arth Goldau early in the morning, the staff is on break. This vehicle was built in 1930 by SLM and MFO for the Arth-Rigi-Bahn (ARB). Carbody with blower unit can be turned 180 degree on the frame. The Arth-Rigi-Bahn started to run in wintertime in 1928 and it was quickly discovered that a plough was not enough. So this electric snow blower locomotive was ordered. In the background is push-pull train BDhe 2/4 # 12 with cab car Bt # 22 and a lowfloor freight car, which arrived as train CC 113 about a minute before (with the photographer on board...).
