Swiss Railways

Views of the Standard and Metre gauge railways of Switzerland. Firstly, some frieght trains near Gotthard, famous for its pass, and very, very long tunnel. Secondly, a look at the lake and the Paddle Steamer ‘Lotschberg’, as well as some metre gauge traffic, at Brienz. Brienz, as many will know, is the bottom terminus of the Brienz and Rothorn Steam Rack Railway. A possible thing to come? Thirdly, some more metre gauge traffic at Realp, at the foot of the Furka pass. The station only serves a population of around 160, but is used for car transport trains, to carry travellers along the rail route, rather than negotiating the Furka pass itself, like we did. (In low thick cloud may I add!)
