T060DVD With the Breithorn steamer to the Matterhorn (REOS production) DVD
Since 1891 there have been trains travelling between Visp and Zermatt. In the early years, the railway company was known as VZ, later extending to Brig, and known as the BVZ. In January 2003 the BVZ merged with the Furka-Oberalp-Bahn to form the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn. The steam loco, “Breithorn” originates from the early years of the VZ, long before the electrification of this interesting narrow gauge railway line, that makes use of the “Abt” rack and pinion system in some locations. On a couple of occasions a year, the Breithorn, that has been modified to oil consumption instead of coal, makes a run from Brig to Zermatt with an option to travel from Zermatt to Findelbach, the first stop on the Gornergrat Bahn. In the first part of the film we follow train on its journey to Täsch including spectacular shots of parallel running with the locomotive. In Kalpetran we witness an unusual shunting procedure using the siding. From Täsch we take our place in the open air wagon, and with two cameras we show you the spectuacular surroundings whilst you enjoy the lovely sound of this little 4 cylinder steamer. Then finally, up the Gornergratbahn to Findelbach station. Again a sound to remember with close-ups of the loco, and some unforgettable views over Zermatt with a clear and sunny Matterhorn. Running time: 58 minutes. REOS production. NTSC USA/CANADA/JAPAN standard.
