Why the name change in Zermatt
Author: edsaalig

I took the first photo some 25 years ago.  The second photo I took on August 28, 2021.  What caused the name change?

The BVZ (Brig-Visp-Zermatt Bahn) was merged with the FO (Furka-Oberalp Bahn) in 2003 to become the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, with headquarters in Brig.

The merged railway runs from Zermatt in the west to Disentis/Muster in the east, with a short branch from Andermatt down to Goeschenen (at the north portal of the original Gotthard Tunnel).
