The train service in this area is fascinating. People at the train service are so helpful in giving travel tips. We were assisted by a person named Videlle who told us the options with patience.

A trip to this small town is well worth the time. Take the high speed train, to the urban train and tour the countryside. When you get to this town, you will be taken in by the beauty and simplicity of it all. Well maintained...More

This neat little train took us right to the end of the track in Waussern for the Ebenalp cable car, which was right across the roadway.

Not only can you reach most places in the canton using the railways, it is also a pleasure to cruise through the landscapes, cross rivers on high bridges and the like. Enjoy.

This "little red train" is a perfect way to travel between Appenzell and Gossau or Herisau to make connections to other cities. You can count on it being on time with the schedule.

Train service is great and never a bad view. One train we were on had to switch to a bus for a leg due to track work, and even that ran like clockwork.

Very pleasant narrow gauge railway linking the St. Gallen Bahnhof (Main train station) and Appenzell. Short walk to most shops, hotels and restaurants in the area.

This is what call the rural "Hop-on Hop-off" bus/train. We used it to see the local countryside, to visit St Gallen, or to access the numerous mountain trams and villages. It is a lovely way to travel and you don't have to watch the road.

Thank woodmister

I think a pass for the two of you. We only stayed 2 nights so we used our Swiss Travel Pass. This is a very lId back, informal train. Never saw anyone checking passes.
