Eurocity train from Zurich (Switzerland) to Milano (Italy) requires 3:40 hrs for 285km route from Zurich to Milano including 5 stops in Switzerland and one stop in Italy.
There are 17 direct trains (between 6:30 am and 8:00 pm) running on the route from Zurich to Milano every day.
The train on the photo is passing the town of Arth on Lake Zug close to famous 15 km long St. Gotthard railway tunnel.
After opening the new 57 km long St. Gotthard Base Tunnel (currently under construction) in 2016, the train journey from Zurich to Milano will be shortened by one hour. This will be the longest railway tunnel in the world.

Quel magnifique paysage. La montagne est superbe et les maisons qui s'accrochent à ses flancs toutes aussi belles les unes que les autres. Un superbe cadrage et un très beau moment.

An interesting shot. Could be a decisive moment too, as you caught the train. Excellent framing and natural colours. The traditional houses are interesting too.
Have a nice Sunday,

Awesome capture of this beautiful hillside village but unfortunately the serenity is broken by the ramble of trains. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

This picturesque mountainous scene with elegant train is a very good illustration for the interesting story about railway transportation between Zurich and Milano. The landscape around the route is simply beautiful on its both natural and man-made features. Excellently composed, masterfully captured and interestingly commented in the note!

This is a stunning view of the beautiful, green mountanside and the fine traditional Swiss buildings. I could imagine that this area has looked the same for a long time, so the addition of the super modern train is quite stunning and gives another dimension to the composition. If I am to criticize anything it would be a certain lack of contrast.

Quel dommage de cassé le silence qui devait règne dans ce joli paysage verdoyant parsemés de chalet, bon POV, et moment avec l'arrivée du train!!!

Salut cher Miro
Wow, that's a big train and I like the way it seems to cut the landscape in half and provide a wonderful contrast to all the green tones that dominate. The POV is superb and the inclusion of the houses gives us a sense of scale aswell as a touch of history in confrontation to the modern electric train.

a picturesque example of life in rural Switzerland, i enjoy this one very much.
its so funny....i didn't even notice the train until i read the note below! I was focused so much on the houses and landscape!
very pretty and classic views.

This is rather a dynamic bit of landscape, a well timed shot with good sense of space and great distance effect. Beautiful and very impressive of a stunning rural view full of lively greenery and the backdrop is amazing with the moving train simply pops out stunningly in the setting. Very clever of you to spot the potential and even cleverer to make it work! Congrats.

The wideness of the valley is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses and of the train. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

So, this one got my attention today! :) Love this viewpoint! What a great shot of the train passing right along the mountainside with the typical, and oh so charming chalets dotting the landscape. For me it's an immediate association to either Switzerland or Germany when I see the lush, green slopes and fields such as you've presented here...I barely even bothered to take a look at the actual location until I started searching details. :)
This is an absolutely delightful microcosm of the countryside, and this shot conveys a sense of both action and serenity. Great range of green tones and strong dimension of the hillside as it gently rolls from corner to corner of the frame. Thanks for sharing this perspective. Have a great day ahead.

Fabulous contrast here with the fast international train passed through the pastoral-green slops and rural area houses. A marvelous sight, and well collected on photo.
A fine shot as clarity and lavish summer veg.'s colors prevails.
