Remarks & Notes 
In 2007, 125 years of the famous Gotthard line was celebrated. The big festival in Erstfeld and Biasca at the beginning of September 2007 was attended by 50000 people. The organizer of the numerous attractions, Diego Marti from the SBB, had relations with the Czech state railway and the original idea to invite an extra train with the beautiful steam locomotives of the Ceske Drahy to Switzerland. Due to profile problems it was not possible to drive the big steam locomotives through the tunnels of the mountain line, but the train ran with steam from the Czech Republic to Erstfeld. The train reached Switzerland via Singen and in Schaffhausen water and coal was collected. Now the mighty "Mountain" 4-8-2 475 # 179 "Šlechtična" (noblewoman), built in 1948 by Škoda, Plzeň is standing beside the shed in Schaffhausen.
