I like the old saw that Switzerland is a theme park for railfans, so much interesting railroading in such dramatic scenery.  And so easy for a tourist to visit.   It is really like no other place in the world. I spent lots of time in Switzerland because I as involved with a company headquartered there, but these pix are an example of railfanning, business travel, and family not mixing well.  After a week away from family I would be ready to get home, so I had to make separate vacation visits to do much train chasing.
