In 2012, the Berner Oberland-Bahnen AG achieved a revenue of 31.9 million francs
and an annual profit of CHF 379,000. The positive result is thanks to the strong
demand in regional passenger transport.

The Bernese Oberland Railway (BOB) was able to profit from the Jungfrau
Railway's centenary year in 2012. Never before have so many guests travelled on
the Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald sections as in 2012. With
traffic income of 10.7 million francs, the Bernese Oberland Railway was able to
achieve a plus of 8.5% in comparison to 2011. As is the case with many other
pre-Alp rail & cableways, the Schynige Platte Railway suffered from a drop in
the number of holiday guests from traditional European markets. Traffic income
decreased by 15.9%.

The Berner Oberland-Bahnen AG looks towards an interesting future.
Ground-breaking investments are planned. With the construction of the
700-meter-long Buechi Tunnel, the risk of services on the section to Grindelwald
being interrupted by natural hazards will soon be eliminated and passenger
comfort as well as timetable stability increased. The existing tunnel and
gallery must be replaced because of the structural condition and current
