🇨🇭Switzerland builds World’s steepest railway

1 min read

The world’s steepest funicular railway has opened to the public in Switzerland.
The floors tilt, adjusting to the slope as the funicular climbs 110m (360ft) over a distance of 100m at the steepest point.
The Stoos Bahn took 14 years to build – 2⃣ years longer than scheduled – at a cost of 52m Swiss francs (£40m; $53m).
But Ivan Steiner, spokesman for the railway, said the project’s completion had made everyone “very proud”.
In mountainous Switzerland, where children regularly use cable cars to get to school, the line will connect communities as well as provide a new tourist attraction.
