In this video, we look at one of Switzerland’s most beautiful and unique railways, the Unesco heritage listed Berninabahn – for the first time on Youtube in 4K in this direction. Our last trip in this direction was in Autumn and with the aim to show this route in every season, we now bring you Summer.
The Bernina railway sets a few records, including being the highest railway alpine crossing in Europe (2253m), the highest adhesion railway of the continent, the open air railway with the greatest height difference (1824m) and furthermore one of the steepest adhesion railways (conventional railway without cogs) worldwide, with gradients of up to 7%.
A unique aspect of Switzerland’s narrow gauge mountain railways is the mixing of passenger and freight wagons in a single train, with wagons often added or removed at intermediate stops with shunting locomotives. On the Bernina line, the cargo mostly consists of wood on stake cars and derivatives of oil in tank cars.
Thanks for watching and have a great day!
