Hi, My partner and I would like to do a reasonable length (at least a couple of hours, not a few minutes) rail trip in switzerland that incorporates the funicular railway.
Suggestions for routes with the best scenery would be greatly appreciated. We will be there in late July, early August '05.:)

Hi!

Try to find something here:

http://usa.myswitzerland.com/
(There you can find nearly all about Switzerland)

For railway trips look at scenic tours on the Homepage above!

My tip:

Take a trip through Lucerne or somewhere around the Lake Lucerne! There are also a lot of funicular railways around (i.e. to the top of Pilatus (a mountain near Lucerne)! Look at the homepage above under "200 Excursions" and choose on the right side under Public Transport: Lucerne Pilatus!)

Regards, Stefan
