The passenger train is 1.9 km long and with a hundred wagons passed through the Swiss Alps from the city of Preda to Berg√ľn, according to AFP.

According to the Rhaetian Railway, it broke the record for the longest passenger train in the world. At the same time, the company noted that there are freight trains and much longer, but here we are talking about passenger trains. The train consists of 25 removable multiple trains. Seven drivers and a total of 21 technicians ensured that all 25 trains were on the same track and accelerated and braked simultaneously.

The head of the Rhaetian Railway, Renato Fasciati, said the action was meant to highlight some of Switzerland's engineering achievements and celebrate the 175th anniversary of Swiss railways.

The Landwasser Viaduct, which rises 65 meters above the valley below, was one of 48 bridges and 22 spiral tunnels that became part of the route.

About 3,000 people paid big money for tickets to see the train pass on a huge screen installed outside Bergun, which is located halfway along the winding track the Albula/Bernina train, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2018.

The journey from point A to point B takes about an hour.

Remember, from November 5, “Train to Victory”, which previously transported passengers only through the territory of Ukraine, will go on its first international flight to Moldova.
