Rail companies:   TMR, Parc d'Attractions du Chatelard, Chemin de fer du Montenvers, Tramway du Mont-Blanc, SNCF

Disc 1 shows the tracks in Swiss territory. The Transports de Martigny et Régions (TMR) operate 2 different routes. On the standard-gauge railway line, the Saint-Bernard-Express runs from Martigny via Sembrancher to Orsières with a branch line from Sembrancher to Le Châble. The route from Martigny to Orsières was opened in 1910, the branch line to Le Châble was only opened in 1953. The narrow-gauge line leads through the Val de Trient to the border station Le Châtelard-Frontière. The TMR trains, also known as the Mont Blanc Express, continue to the French station in Vallorcine, where you have to change to the narrow-gauge SNCF.

The Parc d'attractions du Châtelard (PAC) is a tourist railway company. Since 1975, it has been opening up the excursion area around Lac d'Emosson above Le Châtelard with three exceptional mountain railways: a very steep funicular railway runs from Le Châtelard to Les Montuires train station, where the journey begins with the narrow-gauge panoramic cable car (600 mm track width) to Pied du Barrage, where you have to change again to master the last 160 vertical meters with a modern funicular. Then you are at the top of the dam of Lac d'Emosson. The film trip includes the return trip with the mountain railway.

Disc 2 shows the driver's cab rides on the mountain railways in France near the border.First we take the rack railway from Chamonix up to Montenvers station. In the second film we start the journey at the Nid d'Aigle mountain station and take the Tramway du Mont-Blanc down to the St. Gervais-Le Fayet train station.

A cab ride on the interesting SNCF route from St. Gervais-Le Fayet to the border station at Vallorcine was also planned. Unfortunately, the SNCF refused to grant us a permit to film on this route. Fortunately, we got the copyright for the publication of a film trip from Vallorcine to Chamonix in 2001, so that we can still show part of this SNCF route. We thank Kees Van Den Burg for letting us take over his film.
