The Glacier Express first ran in 1930 and was operated by three railway companies: the Brig–Visp–Zermatt Bahn (BVZ), the Furka Oberalp Bahn, and the RhB. This express offers travelers beautiful panoramic views of the Swiss Alps and the stunning scenery between two major mountain resorts of St. Moritz and Zermatt. The service travels over 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels and across the Oberalp Pass on the highest point at 2,033 m (6,670 ft) in altitude.
Kato have produced this stunning model of the "Worlds Slowest Express" which includes the Ge 4/4 locomotive with working lights and twin powered bogies. It also includes two panorama coaches complete with seating and corridor connections.
An Additional Coach Pack is available for this set which increases the train to a six coach set. Upgrade your set by adding Seated Figures to your coaches.
