on the railway wagon in Kandersteg

We ride on the car wagons to the end of the train. There is then the entrance to the cargo wagon for the motorbikes, which requires some skill to enter. Motorbikes, sized as a Honda Goldwing should check in advance whether they fit, since otherwise they should just stay on the car deck and make the passage there. It is then not recommended to remove the helmet.
