This Swiss train is now the longest in the world

Colombo (#1 news) – Switzerland is now home to the longest passenger train in the world. The train has 100 coaches, is 1910 meters long and has 4,550 seats.

Recently, a train was seen passing through the mountainous terrain of the Swiss Alps. To mark his 175th anniversary of Switzerland’s first railway, the country’s railway operators have teamed up to hold a new Guinness World Record for pulling 100 coaches weighing 2,990 tons and 1.91 km (1.19 mi) long created a train.

The train carried 150 passengers on its journey. We made our way through the blinding sunlight reflecting off the shiny silver roof. The train also had digital destination signs reading ‘Alpine Cruise’ on the front and followed the spectacular Albula-Bernina route, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This route covered about 25 kilometers from Preda to Alvaneu in less than 45 minutes. We passed 22 spiral tunnels and crossed 48 bridges along the way.

The train was operated by 7 drivers and 21 technicians also worked to ensure the safety of the journey. Thousands of people lined the route or waited at stations to watch the record-breaking journey.
