CH12: Departure from Mürren

The tracks leading to the train station and very much the lifeline. It is the terminus of the BLM, Bergbahn Lauterbrunnen-Mürren, a narrow gauge railway. On the other side, is a cable car at Grutschalp, which connects Mürren to Lauterbrunnen. Seen below are the two platforms of Mürren. The attachment in the front is used for goods to be delivered to Mürren.

This has been a wonderful series Ayush! I love the parting shot of the train station with the mountains in the distance.

I love when tracks switch like that in front of stations, Ayush. This looks like a model which would be fun to "play." smile

It makes sens to do it like that, a truckload will cost more to get the goods up the mountain.
Wonderful pictures, thank you for showing.
Sometimes in a sky-lift, they have one compartment for goods.
That is an interesting crossover between the lines. The train below looks beautifully clean. I suppose in Switzerland it would be!

A vital lifeline to the rest of the world. It's interesting watching the goods being transferred from the funicular at the other end of the line to this railway. My usual view used to be loads of skis.

Crossing the lines over looks a dangerous trick Ayush. Swiss railways are great though.

I really like the curves and patterns of the rails
Wonderful photos, Ayush. Those train tracks draw you right into the picture.
I am so enjoying this series.

I love the top photo with the symmetry in the railway tracks, a great visually expressive image.
I like this pair of images Ayush, which won't surprise you. Apparently Swiss railways run so on time one can set your watch by them.
Railways are great subjects
Fascinating, Ayush!

Both very interesting shots.
That is a beautiful station.
Nice montage. Love the symmetry of the tracks in the first one.
