TTR080 Swiss railways The last year of the Lötschberg

The Lötschberg as we have known it for over 100 years will come to an end, but from its  ashes will rise a new super railway UNDER the majestic Swiss Alps.  In the meantime there is so much to remember from the old line along which we make a sentimental journey.  We start at Spiez by the Thuner See and watch trains prepare for the arduous journey.  Then we meander up the north ramp watching trains as we go.  As far as Frutigen the changes to the route will be fairly minor, but here the new base tunnel begins.  We inspect the site and have a look at the underground working before heading on to the Kanderviadukt.  We get some splendid views from the ground and air,  then onto the spiral complex at Felsenburg. We "drive" through the 14km tunnel to Goppenstein, use car and helicopter to find some unusual views of the structures that make the south ramp so memorable.  We conclude at Brig with some stunning shots over the station and the Rhône valley.
