Remarks & Notes 
Testrun for the innauguration of the new Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) on 1th of June 2016. In front of the operation center sud (Betriebszentrale Süd) of the SBB in Pollegio, a Intercity tilt train ICN is running north (left) on the "old" mountain line towards the Gotthard, while another ICN (in the foreground) is waiting on the siding of the doubletrack line, which is going to the south portal (direction left) of the new Gotthard Base Tunnel. With this train, the procedures for the opening ceremony were tested and practised this day. Between the dispatching center and the railway line, temporary installations were built for the inauguration ceremony, like stage, stands, tents etc.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
