On the Maurizio Polier site, polier.ch, are hosted also images of other Swiss photographers and, between the ones of Peter Sutter, I encountered a little joy.

The meter gauge Meiringen-Innertkirchen Bahn born in 1926 to serve the hydroelectric plant that was being built at Innertkirchen and, apart the steam locos used for the building material trains, yet from the 30s provided itself with some small two-axle battery railcars that were used for passenger services and, after the end of the building work, for the residual freight traffic until 1977 when the line was wired.
But, while there are lots of shots of the 22 seats #4 and 5 units, I never saw before images of the smaller (12 seats, probably very cramped) #3.
To be noted that the three railcars are still existing: one of the bigger (or, better, not so small) is preserved by the transport museum in Luzern, the other one is plinthed (under a canopy) at Meiringen station and the smaller one has been ceded to a museum-railway in Germany.

Ciao :wink:
