MThB - Mittelthurgaubahn

Mittelthurgaubahn is one of Switzerland´s normal gauge private railroad companies. It operates mainly in the Kanton of Thurgau, around the city of Winterthur and the town of Weinfelden and the coastal line of Lake Bodensee, but also on SBB´s network, especially in cargo traffic. MThB operates also some lines to Germany and inside Germany in the German Keris Hegau, for example a service called "Seehas" (sea hare) between Radolfzell and Konstanz. MThB´s own network is 42 km long and it was opened for traffic in 1911.

MThB has a broad cooperation with SOB, the SüdOstBahn, another private normal gauge rail company. Together with SOB, MThB also started "Lokoop", a cooperative, which bought first old DDR locomotives and now later brand new CB Br 145 locomotives from Germany and leases them to SOB and MThB as well as some other private companies.
