Photographer's Note

In 2016 the worlds longest and deepest railway tunnel, the Gotthard Base Tunnel opened between Erstheld and Bodio. This 57 km long tunnel shortens the travel time between Zürich and Bellinzona by about one hour. But there is still a regional train connection running through the original high level Gotthard tunnel. If you haven't travelled through this route before, it certainly is worth that extra hour.
This view shows the village of Wassen at 930 m. Here the railway makes a double loop to help the trains deal with the climb.
