T115DVD The Brig-Visp-Zermatt Railway (1993) DVD
Switzerland's magnificent Alpine landscape forms a splendid stage for this highly detailed and artistic study focusing on the famous Brig-Visp-Zermatt railway. At Brig, an important railway hub and cultural center also joining the Federal SBB, the BLS and the Furka Oberalp railways, the BVZ line follows the glittering Rhone river, then changes its direction to the south at Visp, commencing a severe climb at times employing rack track segments. At Stalden, the railway undertakes an arduous and seemingly impossible course barely flanking the rugged mountainside over deep ravines, employing gigantic viaducts and numerous tunnels prior to arriving at Sankt Niklaus. From here it ascends yet higher on the Mattertal valley linking Herbriggen and Randa, two characteristic Walliser villages of sun-scorched wooden houses at the foot of majestic Alpine peaks. At Tasch the cantonal motorway ends, and from here the railway offers the only access to the high altitude resort plateau of Zermatt, reached by an incredible winding climb partly under protective galleries. The fashionable holiday center of Zermatt is not quite the end of our journey, as the famous Gornergratbahn is boarded to reach an even higher summit in the snow-covered mountains yielding breathtaking views of the towering Matterhorn. A return trip retracing the BVZ steps concludes this fabulous program as we board the cab of a modern HGe4/4 II electric engine heading the prestigious 'Glacier Express' all the way back to Brig. English, 120 MN full color. NTSC USA/CANADA/JAPAN standard.
