Steam locomotives and diesel trains from Switzerland on the Furka Cogwheel Railway

The “Furka Cogwheel Steam Railway” is a largely volunteer operated heritage railway which operates a partially rack and pinion-operated line across Switzerland. Culminating at 2,160 meters, above sea level, it is an old mountainous section of the “Furka Railway” that was abandoned after the construction of the Furka Tunnel. It has been gradually brought back into service with the use of steam and diesel locomotives, with the entire line completed in 2010.

On the model railway layout, we see - amongst other things - the famous railway station of Gletsch. It is a nearly realistic replica of the buildings and railway tracks. Furthermore, we can discover some other sections of the “Furka Railway”, for example, the “Steinstafel Bridge“ or the “Steffenbach Bridge”. All model trains are made by BEMO. In 1/87 railway modelling scale, these narrow-gauge railway lines of Switzerland are called “H0m scale” with a track gauge of 12 mm.
