Photographer's Note

Gotthardbahn of Swiss Federal Railways is a major route through the Alps. The north ramp rises from 472m above sea level in Erstfeld to 1106m asl. at Göschenen before entering the Gotthard tunnel.

In the image a pair of Re4/4 (4 axle engine) and Re6/6 (6 axle engine) climbs towards south at Amsteg. This engine combination is so common on Gotthard freight trains that it's nicknamed as 'Re10/10'.
