Well if you didn’t manage to make it to the Forchbahn 100 years celebrations here are some photos of what you missed! There were free rides on Forchbahn carriages of all eras, a “Christening ceremony for a Forchbahn”, pig racing (N.B. the photo just shows the exhausted piglets catching up on some sleep after the first race), a band, the Pfadi entertaining the children with nail and hammer games and cooking bread rolls on sticks and making apple fritters, a market and a Schwingen (Swiss wrestling) contest to name just a few of the attractions. The rain held off and a fun day was had by all.
If you missed yesterday’s VHF Vintage Tram Open Day there is another Open Day along the route from the Tram Museum in Burgwies to Esslingen on 29th September.
Also, this year the Forchbahn celebrates 100 years of service so there will be festivities to celebrate this milestone with a big party at Forch Station on 2nd September. As well as a brunch, there will be an Autumn Market, all manner of local specialities and free rides on the Forchbahn. For more information and the programme of events (in German) please click here.
