Back in (Swiss) time

Everything’s ready for the opening of the world’s longest and deepest tunnel, the new Gotthard base rail tunnel.

_DSC1089-2

Our train will speed up to 250 km/h for 57 km under the Gotthard massive: more than 2 km of rocks above our head!

_DSC1274

Will this shiny coach from the Swiss railways be our wagon?

_DSC1276

Or instead this Trans Europe Express, the most comfy train of the Sixties?

_DSC1273

Maybe the 10 tons, 2000 HP largest electric-engine powered locomotive ever (from 1922)?

_DSC1263-2

Or this C 5/6 2978 (1917 – 1967): it was the last steam locomotive running through the old Gotthard tunnel  … at 65 km/h.

_DSC1253

That’s our boy: the  D 1/3 1 «Limmat», 179 HP – 1847, the fist locomotive operated by the Swiss railway company. All aboard!

Pictures shot in Erstfeld, at the opening ceremony of the Gotthard base tunnel. That day, several historical trains of the Swiss railways were available for public view.

back to the flatland …

_DSC1010-2

… back to Lucerne and the blue of its Roiss river.

This is the end of the Golden Round Trip started with a cruise and a cogwheel train.

The joy of night (g)rain: ISO 8063 (Hi 0.3) with Nikon D800

The joy of shooting pictures in the darkness without tripod: also, I find the grain effect very appealing.  Click each picture to zoom in and enjoy the grain.
