Riding The Bernese Oberland Railway

The Bernese Oberland Railway, is one of the rail lines, that meet at Interlaken Ost station.

This short description is from Wikipedia.

The Bernese Oberland Railway (or correctly translated Bernese Highlands Railway; German: Berner Oberland-Bahn, BOB) is a narrow-gauge mountain railway in the Bernese Highlands of Switzerland. It runs, via a “Y” junction at Zweilütschinen to serve  Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald. The railway is rack assisted (that is although an adhesion railway, rack and pinion operation is used on steep sections of the line to assist traction).

These pictures show the railway.

On my trip I used the railway twice.

It is very much the railway to start your trip into the mountains.

It is a route included in a Swiss Pass.
