Schiller, Uri, Stadt Luzern and Unterwalden .... in procession


Unterwalden (right) originally built in 1902 is one year younger than Uri (left) and both are close sisters. Both also underwent similar changes over the years and both have now been restored to something approximating their original profile. Unterwalden's enclosed upper deck, essential to meet modern passenger comfort expectations, has benefitted from the most modern of designs, and unlike Uri, the glaszing is, from a distance, almost imperceptible

.....and now, the star of the show : PS Unterwalden herself.....
