Stansstad Engelberg Railway Train Poster
In 1898 the railway Stansstad-Engelberg Railway was built. The line was electrified with three phase current, which was used by the 'valley' trams and 'mountain' locomotives. On the plains part of the line the traffic was handled by the trams; for connection with Engelberg these trams were pushed uphill by small locomotives. Due to aging rolling stock and loss of traffic, the STEB went into bankrupty in 1964.
