Cab-view ride

Ever dreamed of driving a locomotive? Now is the time to make your dream come true. It includes all the details: putting on the cap and overalls as well as getting your hands dirty from oiling the machine. On the driver's cab ride with the SPB steam locomotive, you not only control the steering. You also learn how to prepare and heat the locomotive. The ride lasts for one or three hours, as the case may be, including a coffee break. And so that you can be sure it wasn't just a dream, you can take something away with you: the cap, a certificate, an antique map of the Schynige Platte Railway and a souvenir.
