Remarks & Notes 
The Gornergratbahn, a 9.34-kilometer-long rack railroad with the Abt system from Zermatt to the 3089-meter-high Gornergrat, which was electrically operated from the beginning, celebrated its 125th anniversary on August 20, 2023. In beautiful, warm weather, the gold-plated locomotive He 2/2 # 3003, built in 1898, was unveiled at the top station as a new eye-catcher and photo subject "Golden Spot". The photo shows exactly the moment when at 14.37 h (02.37 PM) the previously attached "packaging" with inscription "coming soon" was pulled away. On the right, the management of the BVZ group in historical dresses, part of the festivities on the mountain. The cogwheel locomotive, built by SLM, SIG and BBC is not painted gold, but was real gold-plated by Piffaretti Manufaktur of Lucerne.
