Riffelalp

Two overhead wires are used on the Gornergrat rack railway for its 3-phase power supply and the twin pantographs on the EMUs are joined by an insulator. A section of line nearer the summit is presently being doubled on a new formation resulting in much works traffic. Car 3052 is seen here at Riffelalp descending with a fuel tanker which will transfer to the MGB line in Zermatt and be collected by the branch goods train.
