Footplate Rides

1. 52 8055

On all our public steam trains we offer the exclusive possibility for cab rides. You can see driver and fireman at work and feel the power and speed of the steam locomotive. To give many passengers a chance for a footplate ride, cab rides are done in sections of two station stops, usually lasting between 15 to 30 minutes. If you book early, you may choose your preferred section. Thanks to the light oil firing, our cab is clean and there is no need for special clothing. For safety reasons it is not allowed to speak to driver and fireman whilst the train is in motion, but a represetative from DLM will give you explanations and answer questions.

A ticket, a voucher worth 100.- CHF (Swiss Francs) and a reservation are necessary. Voucher can be purchased in our Shop, or ordered together with the reservation at DLM by mail or phone.

2. Brienz-Rothorn Bahn

This spectacular mountain railway offers cab rides too. The Brienz-Rothorn Railway is the only one worldwide to have three generations of steam locomotives in regular service (locomotives built in 1891/92, 1933/36 and 1992/96). The line has gradients of 1 in 4 almost throughout the scenic line which adds to the general attractiveness of the cab rides. For details see pamphlet.

E-mail Print PDF


Hohentwiel Raddampfer

DLM and VDW (Verein Dampfzentrum Winterthur = Steam Centre Winterthur) organize a combined steam excursion with steam locomotive 52 8055 and the splendid paddle steamer "Hohentwiel". The "Hohentwiel" is the only surviving paddle steamer on Lake Konstanz. Contrary to the other paddle steamers in Switzerland, the "Hohentwiel" does not provide regular timetabled service.  DLM has chartered the ship for the day to enable individual passegers to travel on it. We offer the opportunity to book a combined trip covering steam train and paddle steamer. Those preferring steam train only or cruise only may do so.

Please find more information on the pamphlet (in German) below.
