I read that it is sometimes possible to arrange to ride in front with the driver on the historic train to Schynige Platte. How would I go about arranging this and would a 12 year old be eligible?

Thank you

Hi namm,

You can do that for a fee but I'm not sure if it's still possible to do it. For clarification you should contact the Schynige Platte operator directly.

You can get a driver's view or a front seat view without paying extra by sitting in the front coach directly behind the driver. To do this you probably need to be in the queue as early as possible.

Regards,

Anna

Hi namm,

It looks like the cab-view ride is currently not available due to overhaul of the steam locomotive. Maybe it's operating again during your travel dates. You can indeed best contact the operator for details. Please see www.jungfrau.ch/en-gb/schynige-platte/cab-view-ride/ for more information.
