Mini freight

In Switzerland, rail still has an important share in the modal mix. Government takes adequate measures to get traffic off the trucks and onto trains. As a consequence, they have managed to preserve the peace in the beautiful Alps. And that’s one of the reasons why I love this part of Europe so much.
To get all this traffic on rails, it is still possible to lad freight onto trains at the stations. Like here in Surava, where we were at the right time at the right place to witness a mini Tm2/2 shunter collect some loaded cars. A nice break, and some unexpected freight action, in the search for a spot to photograph the next passenger train.
