Foxtrail «Emma»

In search of Jim Button’s engine.

Join BLS on an exciting and modern treasure-hunt in Emmental and Entlebuch. Together with Jim and Luke, the fox is trying to find Emma the engine, who has disappeared. They need your help in finding her.


Emma the engine heard about the beautiful Emmental and the River Emme and was desperate to come visit the region that shares her name. She set off under her own steam to explore the area. But Jim and Luke are very worried about the engine, which is why the pair need your help! Join the fox in the search and help them both find Emma. But beware, there is many an obstacle to overcome along the way. You will have to prove your carpentry skills and demonstrate your knowledge of the famous Emmentaler cheese. Moreover, an old pumping station must be made operational once more, and you will be able to serve as an engine driver and maybe even steer a real engine.
