Artist's Description

Andermatt Switzerland, 1447m (4747) above sea level is situated in the Ursen valley one of the most impressive high altitude valleys in Switzerland. It is in the cross roads of the mountain pass routes N to S and W to E, this is also where the 4 great rivers rise. The Rhine, the Rhone, the Reuss and the Ticino. It is the meeting point for 4 great linguistic and cultural regions of Switzerland and 3 major alpine passes , The Gottard, the Furka and the Oberalp. The 3 passes are a magnet for motorbike enthusiasts and cyclists . We took the Glacier Express from Tiefen Castel to Andermatt a 31/2 hour journey over the alps with stunning views. It is the slowest express in the world the whole journey from St Moritz to Zermatt taking 71/2 hours.Linking the 2 main mountain resorts it goes over 291 bridges, through 91 tunnels, and across the Oberalp Pass which is 2033 m (6,670 ft) in altitude.The entire line is narrow gauge and part of it is rack and pinion both for ascending the steep grades and for controlling the descent of the train down the back sides of these grades.
