Brienz Rothorn Bahn (Zwitserland) - Cab Ride

With the mist lifting on a warm still morning we join the train driver on the first train on the last operating day of 2015 of the Brienz Rothorn Bahn, one of the most outstanding rides in Switzerland. We start climbing through autumn gold woods with shafts of sunshine breaking through the leaf cover creating an almost magical atmosphere, before passing through a series of tunnels, with occasional stunning views over the lake far below. We pass the tree line onto the rugged mountainside for more dramatic vistas across deep valleys and snow covered peaks.

The railway is 7.6 kilometres (4.7 mi) long and the track gauge is 800 mm (2 ft 7 1⁄2 in) Filmed - 25 October 2015
