Trains Tube: Gotthard Base Tunnel

Having trouble viewing this video?   Please visit our Video FAQ page
Trains Tube takes you to Switzerland for a look at the Gotthard Base Tunnel. The world’s longest rail tunnel went into regular service in December after 17 years of construction. Before it opened, though, the Swiss Federal Railways offered excursions to see the inside of the tunnel, and to learn how it was built.

For more on the tunnel, check out our feature story in the February 2017 issue.
