World's steepest funicular railway opens in Stoos

Way up there in the Alps a stunning railway line has opened, taking the title for 'world's steepest funicular railway' in the process.  The incredible feat of engineering is located in the Alpine resort of Stoos, in the north-east of the country, 45-minutes drive from Lucerne.
