Description

Erstfeld railway station (German: Bahnhof Erstfeld) is a railway station in the Swiss canton of Uri and municipality of Erstfeld. The station is situated on the original line of the Gotthard railway, at the foot of the ramp up to the Gotthard Tunnel. The original line, and the newer line through the Gotthard Base Tunnel meet at a junction some 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) north of, and downhill from, Erstfield station. Most trains on the Gotthard route now use the base tunnel and therefore do not pass through the station.A motive power depot at Erstfeld station houses rolling stock needed for the Gotthard route, and especially for banking service. A Ce 6/8 "crocodile" serves as a memorial for the legendary Gotthard locomotives.
