AB (Appenzeller Bahnen/Appenzell Railways)

The Appenzeller Bahnen is a network of lines, with services generally at 30 min intervals, centred on the resort of Appenzell.

It has connections to/from the SBB main lines at Gossau and St Gallen stations.

Both Gossau and St Gallen have regular direct trains from/to Zurich, Zurich Airport and Winterthur – though the trains from these destinations call at Gossau before St Gallen, so change at Gossau for the AB Trains.

Jakobsbad station on the AB network is adjacent to the Kronberg cable car also operated by AB.
