Long freight

Sledges are dangerous. Trust me. I would experience that in person in a couple of hours – at this moment we were only making sure not to be hit by one coming down the hill. With success, fortunately. All to get a nice view of the Samedan to Chur freight train. Towering above it all is the town of Latsch.
The freight train, hauled by Ge 6/6 II 701, is relatively long compared to the ones we had seen so far. I think these trains sometimes stop at intermediate stations to pick up, or drop off, cars.

RhB 701 with it’s freight train from Samedan to Chur is approaching the station of Bergün. Bergün, 27.1.2016
