Photographer's Note

Re 4/4 engine of Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon railway with passenger train running towards Bern at Mitholz a few km north of Kandersteg.
From Kandersteg the line slopes down through a long zigzag making 180 degrees turn twice. Once inside a mountain slope and another time here at Mitholz.

Traffic along this line will slow down in 2007, when the new 34,6 km long Lötschberg base tunnel will open and bypass the mountain ramps.

See http://www.blsalptransit.ch for project information.
