Cab ride on the old Gotthard Railway line

In this cab ride we ride with the train driver from Arth Goldau to Locarno on the famous Gotthard railway. The new Gotthard base tunnel was opened in 2016, but in this cab ride we will still cross the old mountain railway via Göschenen and Airolo. Together with the new tunnel, this is still one of the most important connections between northwestern Europe and Italy with a lot of freight traffic. Sit back and relax as for the next 2 hours and 9 minutes you will be able to see this beautiful railway from the train driver's position. This video was taken on the 14th June 2014 from a Re 460 locomotive of the SBB (Swiss Railways) that left Arth Goldau at 09h53 and arrived in Locarno at 12h13.
