on the Rhein). There was a load problem that held up our first
Lok's arrival but we made it all up. Normal departures usually get
held up all over so starting late is good. We ended up in Frutigen,
in in the Kander Valley by one of the NEAT tunnel, just past Thun,
about 50km south of the Bern capital.. Talk about super elevated
track! About a 12" difference from one track pair to the other !!
The new high speed test train was parked on a siding. This one can
increase the existing speed by tilting the cars themselves by an
additional 9 degrees. There are some LONG turnouts for 120kmh
trains. Look like a #12 or something.
