Remarks & Notes 
Driver's desk with Sécheron controller of the electric railcar ABe 4/4 # 30 of 1911 of the Rhaetian Railway, running at 31 km/h on the 7.0 % gradient of the Bernina line above Poschiavo. This controller is not located in front of the driver, but in the left corner of the cab. In the middle of the front of the railcar there is a door for the transition to another vehicle, where the driver is also standing. With his right hand he operates the brake valve, which is located on the right side of the front door. The operation is basically standing, but there is a very simple folding seat. These railcars have a powerful electric brake, the generated current is converted into heat via resistors on the roof and released into the air.
