Arrived in Switzerland via the Arosa line and therefore another route comes from Switzerland. The Gotthard Railway is the second highest standard gauge railway in Switzerland. It was built between 1872 and 1882 and crosses the Alps with the Gotthard tunnel at 1,151 meters above sea level. At the time, the 15 km long Gotthard tunnel was the longest in the world. the 110 km long Gotthard route between Erstfeld, on the northern side of the Alps, at an altitude of 472 meters, to Bellinzona in the south, near the Italian border, at an altitude of 241 meters, modeled as it was before the completion of the new Gotthard -Base tunnel ran. Due to the extreme height differences, long ramps are used for the access roads on each side of the tunnel, as well as several spirals inside the mountain. Operation of the Gotthard Railway is challenging and varied and includes both regional and interregional passenger transport as well as important freight transports to supply industries. Many are led by SBB's fleet of sleek Re 460 locomotives. Control car variants of the EWIV passenger car can also top the line, with a 460 pushing the train.
