Furka Pass Cogwheel Steam Railway Switzerland on Mon 25 July 2011.


Here is my footage of The Furka Pass Cogwheel Mountain Steam Railway in Switzerland. First we see the loco DFB 1 simmering at Oberwald waiting for its13.55pm departure on Monday 25th July 2011. Then we see the train climbing out of Oberwald on the rack system, entering the spiral Kehrtunnel and then arriving at Gletsch. Finally we see the loco working hard climbing up to the summit of Furka. It was a most enjoyable days filming in stunning scenery and I hope you enjoy watching half as much as I did filming.
