Bever–Scuol-Tarasp railway

The Bever–Scuol-Tarasp railway is a Swiss metre-gauge line, operated by the Rhaetian Railway and connecting the Lower Engadine with the Albula Railway. The 49.4 km (30.7 mi) single track line has a total of 17 tunnels and 55 major bridges, and was opened in 1913. The route is electrified, having been used as a test track for single-phase alternating current from the date of its construction.

This picture shows a push–pull train on the Bever–Scuol-Tarasp railway, with a Neva Retica BDt control car leading and a Rhaetian Railway Ge 4/4 pushing, photographed at the La Punt-Chamues-ch railway station in the Engadin valley. There is a 2.0-percent gradient through the station.
