Welcome to ZWEISIMMEN.COM, created in 2006 to display my photos of the MOB railway in Switzerland. If you are looking for ZWEISIMMEN TOURISM or the ZWEISIMMEN COMMUNITY (GEMEINDE) website go to ZWEISIMMEN.CH.
You are welcome to view the 'Boxcars' page by clicking on the image below. This is only a prototype page but it will give you an idea of the quality of photos I plan to display on this website. My standard will be 100kb per photo, which is greater than most JPG train images at similar train enthusiast sites. Since this is only a placeholder website for now, please visit GRUETZI.COM, my COMPLETED website displaying photos of Switzerland. In addition to trains you will find photos of the alps, animals, towns, villages, transport and people. Thanks for your interest.
Recent addition: Although Zweisimmen.com is meant for photos of the MOB, I will include some non-MOB information such as this. Click the photo to download a 4.5mb 17-page Adobe Acrobat picture album of the RhB (Rhaetische Bahn) railway station in Susch, Switzerland. These high-resolution images were created to assist model railroaders who are modelling this popular station.

The only way I'll ever know WHO visited this site and what part of
the world you are from is if you
