early double deck carriage on the Appenzeller Bahn, Switzerland

An early scene of a steam loco on the standard gauge Zahnradbahn or rack and pinion railway from Rorschach to Heiden, pushing four cars - the first has two levels.  This 5.6 km line which ascends 400 metres above the Bodensee, was opened originally as the Rorschach–Heiden-Bergbahn in 1875. It was electrified in 1930 and became part of the Appenzeller Bahn in 2006.
