T120DVD The Dampfbahn Furka Bergstrecke - DFB - (1994) DVD
Among the most exciting of railway journeys through the landscapes of Switzerland is undoubtetly that of the renowned Glacier Express. Encompassing three cantons of the Swiss Federation, it also runs on three distinct railway agencies from Sankt Moritz to Zermatt. Perhaps the most scenic section of the run is the journey on the Furka Oberalp Bahn which affords the traveller spectacular views of the high Alps and the glittering glacier of the Furka. In recent years however, the original line section between the villages of Realp and Oberwald was closed as a new gigantic tunnel was constructed and activated bypassing this treacherous section that in wintertime became a wind-blown and snow-swept landscape that necessitated the costly and time consuming maintenance of the track and catenary structures. Through the efforts of a small group of dedicated enthusiasts, the abandoned line that commenced at Realp and climbed to the stops of Tiefenbach and Furka has however recently been restored and reactivated as what is now called the Dampfbahn-Furka-Bergstrecke, or DFB, providing uncanny journeys to yesteryear with excursions up the mountain valley in original century-old wooden coaches and steam powered locomotives. This program provides a comprehensive look at this marvelous railway, with lots of steam activity, photogenic run-bys and a complete journey on the special DFB 'Furka Express', all in some of the Goms valley and Furka Glacier's most picturesque backdrops. English, 55 MN full color. NTSC USA/CANADA/JAPAN standard.
