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. It cost CHF52 million and was officially opened by Swiss President Doris Leuthard on 15th December, with the public getting their first experience of the mind-boggling new railway a couple of days after the opening.
