Built in 1914 for the Furka-Oberalp Railway, this Mogul rack and adhesion locomotive (Swiss classification HG3/4) is now owned by the Dampfbahn Furka Bergstrecke but is kept at the Chamby Depot of the Blonay-Chamby Railway. On the 5th & 6th September 2015, it worked steam trains for a festival in Lenk. Here it is returning home, having just passed Saanenmoeser to reach the 1275m high summit of the 10.5Km 1-in-25 climb from Zweisimmen.
