Photographer's Note

In the photo we have a partial model of the locomotive number 7 of the rack railway on Rigi in Switzerland. The track is equipped with a Riggenbach ladder rack. The locomotive was built in 1873 and was equipped with a standing boiler. Its approximate form is shown in the model. In 1892 the locomotive was fitted with a classic horizontal boiler. The actual locomotive exists today in working order. It was the first locomotive to be produced at the newly established locomotive factory in Winterthur. The model is located near Rigi - Kulm.
