We first went to Aarlberg where there is one of the two sugar factories in Switzerland that process sugar beet. We had to change trains at Biel/Bienne and Lys but found there was not a great deal to see.

We returned to Liestal and spent an hour or so watching the trains and then went to Olten to catch the train to Neuchatel. We took about an hour at Olton and were amazed at the number of trains, there were at least ten freights that had to be interleaved through the frequent passenger trains.
