The weather in the Goms

a nostalgic adventure trip

Furka Steam Railway

I’m heavy and black, and I hiss and spit. Once upon a time, I was taken out of service, because I was behind the times and good for nothing, apparently. My days seemed to be numbered and my fate was sealed. And yet, I’m still here. I run on iron tracks – in spite of a driving headwind. I charm people; I’m a great favourite with children; I even make children of grown men. People who travel with me forget about time and learn to see the world through fresh eyes. I climb the sides of mountain valleys. I reveal views of passes through the Alps and bring you closer to the summit of the mountain. May I thrill you too? Just say “yes” and climb aboard. Chuhchuhchuhchuh… I’m the steam locomotive.
