T108DVD Europe On Rails Vol 1 (1986) DVD
Our journey begins in Paris, where the streamlined TGV fleet of high speed EMUs is followed to the junction at Comb La Ville. The picturesque French provinces of Borgogne and Champagne soon create a splendid backdrop to the many classic compositions encountered on the PLM artery to Dijon. We then proceed with a tour of West Germany taking us from the pastoral valleys of Bavaria and steam celebrations at Nurenberg, down the Rhine river and its castle encrusted slopes. The massive Alpine formations of Switzerland are reached next, as we focus on the sinuous Gotthardbahn through the famous tunnel under the Sankt Gotthard Pass. Spectacular bridges, viaducts and reversing spirals give this mountain railway a class of its own. Also in Switzerland we travel with the metric rack railway of the Furka Oberalp, as we cross forbidding icy peaks on a memorable journey from Brig in the Rhone valley to Disentis in Grisons. As we cross the frontier into Austria, the important Westbahn runs adjacent peaceful farmlands and dense woods, as it connects magnificent baroque cultural centers. We follow this route from Salzburg to assault a winding ascent over the Raxalpe range of the Semmering Pass, presenting us with spellbounding views of Styrian villages nestled amid lush slopes. We then stop at the beautiful city of Innsbruck to soon cross into Italy. The mountain line from Brenner to Verona is frequented by vintage and ultramodern units of the F.S. stables. A grand finale awaits us at the glittering sea queen of Venice, where we tour its architectural treasures and bid farewell to an impressive composition of the Orient Express. English, 140 MN full color. NTSC USA/CANADA/JAPAN standard.
