Bus stop in foreground, railroad platform in background, level boarding straight into the train. Please note some cost-cutting details: Railroad equipment (station signs, loudspeakers) and bus stop equipment is fitted to the same poles, which carry lights for both sides.

The Tälesbahn is a very small operation: Only 5.6 miles of track with 5 intermediate stops. 12 minutes of travel time plus 3 minutes of turnaround time allow a halfhourly memory schedule with one train.
