1. Re: Furka Bergstrecke Steam Train

Thanks mum47 for these informations. This route will be one of the train highlights in Switzerland. Certainly more attractive (but slower) than riding on the Glacier Express through Furka tunnel. Thanksfully there are lots of train enthusiasts who have worked for free to restore this ancient train route! I'm already looking forward to trying out this steam train.
