“Two four-cylinder compound locos, Nos 705 (built 1904) and 2978 (built 1917) are seen in heavy rain below the church at Wassen, which they will pass two more times as they climb to the Gotthard tunnel, with the special train from Erstfeld to Bellinzona celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the opening of the Gotthard Railway”
