Remarks & Notes 
Cogwheel locomotive He 2/2 # 3003 was one of three locomotives of the Gornergratbahn (GGB) when the railway opened in 1898, delivered by SLM and BBC. Exactly 125 years later, on august 20, 2023, the locomotive, gold-plated by Piffaretti Manufaktur in Lucerne, was exhibited on the Gornergrat as "Golden Spot". In the background the 4221 meter high Zinalrothorn. Unfortunately, even 1 1/2 months after the unveiling of the locomotive, the approach path to the Golden Spot has not been completed and access to the locomotive is not available yet.
