Photographer's Note

I decided to repost this as the mountain face looked hazy. As far as I can remember it actually wasn't. But strong brightness difference lead to loss of contrast on the upper half of the picture. This time mountain face and grass field were processed separately to show better contrast.

Original note:
Class BDhe4/8 train of Jungfraubahn leaving Kleine Scheidegg towards the highest railway station in Europe, Jungfraujoch at 3454m. The mountain in the background is Mönch.

The railway has 1m gauge and uses rack and pinion all it's 9.3 km route. Mostly open air section to Eigergletscher station was opened in 1898. Most of the route goes in tunnel inside Eiger and Mönch mountains and the top part of the route to Jungfraujoch was opened in 1912.
