Real Rail Adventures: Grand Train Tour of Switzerland, a new 60-minute documentary, is the sequel to the Telly Award-winning public television special co-produced by Small World Productions and KCTS/Seattle. The adventures continue with another set of rides, different destinations, and more Swiss splendors. Viewers’ choices are expanded with Swiss trains aplenty—new and old, big and small, breathtaking and efficient.
This time host Jeff Wilson “gets back to nature” highlighting an abundance of outdoor options. Jeff models how to take the train to scenic hikes, exhilarating bike rides, rollicking raft trips and more. Lively locals provide context, insights and diversity. Short stopovers reveal remarkable panoramas, daily traditions, and irresistible strolls in pristine villages.
Real Rail Adventures: Grand Train Tour of Switzerland showcases the construction marvels and visual splendors of the Swiss rail system. From world-class mainlines, to stunning scenic routes, to pioneering steam locomotives and historic cog trains, we celebrate triumphs of Swiss engineering and ingenuity. Soaring peaks and plunging valleys pose mind-boggling obstacles for trains. The Swiss have responded with astonishing trestles, bridges and tunnels.
