Swiss Narrow Gauge Private Railways Dvd


SKU: 671 Categories: ,



Switzerland has been described as a theme park for railway enthusiasts. Part of this irresistible charm lies in the vast network of narrow gauge railways, virtually all of which are in private hands. Thirty-four of these are shown in this programme, many with their associated systems. The scenery they run through ranges from undulating green countryside to deep mountain snow.

 The narrowest of the gauges, the 750mm Waldenburgbahn features along with it’s 0-6-0T steam locomotive, scenes that could have been filmed 75 years ago.

From the city, in that of the BLT in Berne, short lines such as the less than 2km Bergbahn Rheinecke-Walzenhausen with it’s 600 volt and unusual 1200mm gauge rack operation over 25% grades and one railcar, to the longer route of the 60km Apenzellerbahn are all covered.

From the famous Jungfraubahn to the little known Trogenerbahn, visit all of these accompanied by an informative and authoritative historical narration.

From steam to steeple cabs, from the MOB to the mobile library, the diversity and gems contained in this programme will probably leave you wanting to visit some of these Swiss Private Narrow Gauge Railways.

Approx. 110 minutes.
