trains down the village street!

The Gruyeres-Fribourg-Morat system is a network of narrow and standard gauge lines in the west of Switzerland. To me the best bit is at Montbovon, junction with the Montreux-Oberland-Bernoise route, where the first half mile or so of the route runs down the village street. Although not that unusual in Switzerland it's still always a bit of a surprise to see the trains running down the middle of the road!

These shots are all June 1987, but the line is still running of course, though the trains may be a little more modern these days!
