Some impressions from the high altitude Furka Railway along the original route of the Glacier Express, past the Rhone Glacier in Gletsch. The star attraction is now the green loco Nr. 704, which was built in the 1920s and shipped directly to French-Indochina (Vietnam). In 2018 it first steamed in Switzerland after a lenghty overhaul. This year it again was the signature attraction for the Furka Railway's public summer trains. This clip was filmed on the penultimate September weekend, when no less than 3 rack tanks were used on one Sunday. In addition to the 0-8-0 Nr. 704 with its external rack gear, also Blue Nr. 1 and Black Nr. 4 feature in this clip, which shows the western-most section of the Furka Railway between Gletsch and Oberwald. The twisting pass road above Gletsch, which also appears in the short film, was used to film the James Bond movie "Goldfinger" in the 1960s.
