T121DVD Gotthardbahn cab ride (1994) DVD
As one of Switzerland's most renowned mountain railways, the Gotthardbahn has continued to fascinate the enthusiast and traveller since its commencement almost a century ago. The spectacular scenery revealed on its course from the lakes region of the north to the evergreen mountain valleys of the Alpine passes is truely mesmorizing. A major trunk line of critical importance to the European community, the Gotthard railway is thriving with continuous activity: during peak periods as many as 250 trains will travel the line in a day, with over 10 million tons of goods transported per year. The rail line ascends the steep 2.7 percent mountain grade in a continuous serpentine that involves several complete helical loops by the villages of Wassen and Faido, as well as making use of the famous tunnel under the Sankt Gotthard massif.
