A few "professional" pictures, or hot to combine the useful and the exciting when being on the road for the job...

Until shortly I had a job at Colenco Power Engineering AG in Baden, Switzerland ( ). I was oftly on the road for this job. Naturally I always had my camera with me, and I had the lunches almost always in station restaurants, or in some near of rails...

These journeys brang me principally to Gräubünden, Ticino and western Switzerland. Here a few samples:

Startpoint: Dättwil

My starting point war Dättwil in canton Aargau, located on the "Nationalbahn" line Wettingen - Mellingen - Lenzburg. The traffic isn't very various: one regional push-pull train RBe 540 + AB VU1 + control coach BDt, but the village gives a nich rear for shooting pictures.

The Gotthard line

Ticino is oftly called the "sunny side of Switzerland", or "a piece of Italy", but, always whan I was there it was pouring. So I didn't bring nice pictures from there...
