We stayed in Appenzell for four days and took the Appenzeller Bahnen all over the region. Some brand new shiny trains and some older trains. All were exactly on time and very pleasant to ride. Love these trains!

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.

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.

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.
