LOCOVISION: High Roads to St. Moritz
In the cab on the High Roads to St. Moritz
Via Rail in Summer and Winter
Join us in the cab of this 2,400 hp, GE 4-4-2 electric locomotive pulling a set of pristine passenger cars. You'll see our engineer at the controls handling his duties with exactness and aplomb. We'll have meets with several passenger and freight trains on the way our climb through the mountains will take us 4,500 ft. above sea level, and even with a prevailing 3.5% grade, we'll have no trouble maintaining our cruising schedule of 35 mph. At the 20,000 ft. Albula Tunnel, we'll pass into the valley of upper Engadin...
This is indeed one of Europe's most fascinating mountain range runs.
