2 1/2 Foot Gauge Railways in Switzerland

Waldenburgerbahn

In contrast to Austria, the narrow gauge railroads in Switzerland are meter gauge (see RAIL-INFO SCHWEIZ for meter gauge railroads). Only some construction railroads were 2 1/2 foot. But there is one exception: the Waldenburgerbahn. In this railroad is still in operation!
