At St. Gallen, the main hub for regional trains, you can transfer to the Gossau–Appenzell–Wasserauen line. To see more of the territory, you may return to St. Gallen by way of Herisau. The Swiss Pass includes St. Gallen and Schaffhausen city transit, as well as overall rail privileges throughout Switzerland.
