From world-class mainlines and stunning scenic routes to pioneering steam locomotives and historic cog trains, REAL RAIL ADVENTURES celebrates the triumphs of Swiss engineering and ingenuity. Engineers overcame the country's numerous natural obstacles - soaring peaks, plunging valleys and craggy terrain - by building impressive (and improbable) trestles, bridges and tunnels.
