It's a little train that connects the towns Aigle and Leysin.

awesome! how is it possible that it climbes that steep slopes?
It is a cogwheel train, which allows it to drive on very steep slopes. The train connects Aigle (415m.) to Leysin (1260m.) in 30 minutes, in beautiful landscapes! Although I'm used to it, when I see it, I'm always impressed ;-) !
Wow! New color scheme! I thought that it was beige and brown.... It is very steep slope so I like to look like a toy train <3 from this train, can you see your house and Castle Aigle?
Thank you Satoshi! I'm glad you like it!!! That's right that the Aigle-Leysin was beige and brown. But it changed some years ago. From Aigle, there are 4 different train lines that serve ski stations in the mountains in different directions. Previously, there were 4 different companies, each one with its colour of trains. Then, in 2009 I think, they merged into one company named the TPC, Public Transport of Chablais. The trains have therefore changed color to be harmonized with the TPC logo! From this point of view, from the train, you can see the castle of Aigle and perhaps my house a little further, but I'm not sure :-)
Oh Merci! They merged into TPC! TPC's logo is violet, and image colors are light green. I associate the Vineyard!
Yes the letters of the logo are violet, but on the left there are sorts of green balls, in gradient commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil.... Perhaps symbols of vineyard... I don't know ;-)
