Lotschberg

 

A Bern-Lotschberg-Simplon Ae6/8 electric motor pulls a passenger train out of the Lotschberg Tunnel under the Swiss Alps. The tunnel, completed in 1912 allowed swift passage between Berne, the capital of Switzerland and Milan, Italy by joining up with the already completed Simplon Tunnel. This poster by Plinio Columbi who was well known for his posters of Swiss Alpine scenery.
