The single track runs in a line shaped like a quarter-circle with a 324ft radius before plunging into an opening in a huge rock face and entering a 700ftlong tunnel. There was no large scaffolding in the traditional manner: a metal tower was built within three taller piers, each equipped with a bridge crane.
The towers rose as construction proceeded upwards, until the arches could be built by putting up wooden scaffolding on them.

Here the railway proliferates in all its forms: from rack-and-pinion mountain crawler to lavish inter-city.

We enjoy birds-eye views from lofty mountain summits, and helicopter vistas of the landscape. The lines featured contain railways inspired by a wide variety of prototypes, located on various continents as well as British companies.
Billed as 'the slowest express train in the world', the service travels between St Moritz and Zermatt, a seven-and-a-half-hour ride up into the clouds, through untouched Alpine countryside, over roaring mountain streams, past towering walls of rock.
It crosses 291 bridges and chugs through 91 tunnels.
Astonishingly, it took just 14 months to construct: it stands 130ft high and 426ft long and comprises six arches of dark limestone.
You can understand why trains are held in such great affection by the Swiss.
Until the middle of the 19th Century (when Britain provided the world with the gift of rail travel), moving from one part of Switzerland to the next was likely to be a lengthy, disagreeable business of trailing up and down vertiginous mountains.
