We then went on to St. Gallen in the Appenzellerbahn train fitted with the Riggenbach rack for descending into St. Gallen. This goes around the steepest, sharpest curve in Switzerland but will be eliminated in a couple of years through the construction of a tunnel as part of the St. Gallen metro system.
We had a sandwich in the platform at St. Gallen while waiting for our train to Nesslau. The station was busy with the normal diet of passenger trains with a few freights thrown in, including one hauled by a Re 6/6.
