The 27 EMU is the first of the train package that reaches Alpnachstad (august 2011) Once the EMU has unloaded all the passengers it is placed on the transfer table, it's moved to the other track and runs a few metres upwards, to allow enough space on the short platform to the other 4 trains (august 2011) Leaving Alpnachstd we can see the 28 EMU stopped on the second track in this station (august 2011) The station has a fairly long stretch with two tracks to park trains (august 2011)
