Our photo friend from the Interlaken picture that puddin discovered has been kind enough to send us a lot more info, as well as another picture for us to see!

:thankyou: so much!! And we are hoping to have you join us here!!

Quote
Thanks for your e-mail and excitement and I'm glad to be able to help
patching some of your Amazing Race puzzle!

We were on a train on Nov 2 to Spiez, Switzerland (and then transferring to
another train to Interlaken) when flocks of cameras and people got on in
Domodossola, Italy. I thought some sort of Italian celebrities were getting on
or something, but apparently they were Americans. They came around in our car
asking a few people 'around' us who were the locals from Italy (we boarded in
Milan) talking in a quiet manner, telling them that they are doing a travel show
without saying what it is. But it was obvious from their questions that for
people doing a travel show they had done NO research about where they were
filming (that's when we figured out what show it really was.)

We overheard they were quizzing people on the train for a certain name or place
in Interlaken, including talking to the Italian couple (both of whom spoke good
English and were well-traveled) sitting next to us. The team in on our car was
the ones in the photo, wearing orange shirts. We all rode to Spiez, and got off
and transferred to the train to Interlaken. It was probably a little after noon
when they boarded and it was about 2.30-3pm when we all got off in Interlaken. I
took photos of them at the train station when they were rushing into taxis and
heading somewhere. Each team seems to have a cameraman and a sound engineer
assigned and closely followed.

I also saw other 3 teams that got off (I don't really know how many are there in
total though). One older couple looking less agitated than the rest, another one
of looking-like sisters wearing green shirts, and the other team with an African
American lady. It's kind of funny that when we got off at Spiez awaiting quietly
to get on the next train, these teams all seemed scrambled and almost 'acted'
like they were going to miss a train and ran all over to get to the right
platform.. which was the one right next to where we got off. It was a tiny
station!

I'm attaching you another non-zoomed photo at the station too, taking at the
same time. I'm guessing that the older guy in there was the taxi driver.

Now, the question I have is whether the AR14 teams are going to Interlaken or just changing trains at Interlaken. It appears that the answer is going to, but Interlaken is a large train switching center conveniently right in the middle of Switzerland. Interlaken is where I got the first of 4 trains to get to the Jungfrau.

apskip, I believe that they get off at Interlaken and go outside where they take a taxi, as seen in the picture and as described by our source.

Well I'm not a map person but heres some info:

The trip from Locarno to Domodossola is made by way of the Ferrovie Autolinee Regionali Ticinesi, or FART. This is a metre gauge elecric train also known as the Centovalli Railway. It is an interurban line that runs between Locarno and Domodossola, and is run by two companies, FART in Switzerland, and SSIF, or Società subalpina di imprese ferroviarie, in Italy. The route is a key link in connecting the Gotthard Line with the Simplon Line along the southern edge of the Alps. The SBB connects with Locarno from Bellinzona and the Gotthard line to the east, and with Domodossola from Brig to the west.

So the could have spent time in Locarno on Nov 1st then early Nov 2 to Domodossola to Interlaken? Color me confused.

I would guess that these 4 Teams are in the "middle" of three release groups from an overnight stay in Locarno.  Their train left Locarno at 10:47 am and reached Domodossola at 12:35 pm.  Then they got on the spoiler's train at 12:48 pm.

The trains from Locarno to Domodossola would be these three:

I agree with the rail routes indicated by Chateau. There is one missing to complete the picture. Interlaken has 2 train schedules, East and West. It is the East which is most relevant to arriving from Spiez. The Spiez departure times between 2:25pm and 3:00 for this 25 minute ride are:

dep. Spiez 1425 arr. Interlaken Ost 1454
dep. Speiz 1432 arr. Interlaken Ost 1451

Note: Above schedules were changed from the West to the West station, as suggested by Chateau.

Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland between Lakes Thun and Brienz and at the feet of the three famous peaks Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau is a holiday and conference resort. In addition, there is the Schilthorn where there is a cablecar to the mountaintop featured in a James Bond film. A fleet of ships, including one historic paddle-steamer on each lake, cruises on Lakes Thun and Brienz, but maybe not in November. Just ten kilometres away from Interlaken, on a sunny south-facing slope, lies Beatenberg-Niederhorn, a paradise for paragliders. For hikers there is an extensive network of hiking routes. Although skiing is possible nearby, the season hasn't really started.

It probably does not matter too much but the Team was photographed getting a taxi outside the West Interlaken station.

Our photo source for Interlaken is being such a huge help--and I am pleased to be able to use her name so please give Nijjy a BIG :ty for the all the info!

I asked more about the "sisters"  and more about if they heard anything about where they needed to go:

I meant they were looking alike, but perhaps they are just friends.

I didn’t really hear what they were asking for during that time, but my husband thinks he heard they were asking how to find a person in Interlaken.
