Switzerland Day 5 Schynige Platte

The day dawned clear for our expedition to Schynige Platte - this involves getting to Wilderswil by two trains from Wengen and then the wonderful cog railway up to the Platte. The line was opened in May 1893, and was electrified in 1914. The journey takes 50 minutes with panoramic views of Interlaken area and then the Jungfrau range. Unfortunately the weather didn't hold for long. We left around 2.30 and by 5pm in Wengen a thunderstorm arrived.
