High-Speed Swiss Train Set for Debut

On December 10, Switzerland's 22-mile long Loetschberg Base Tunnel, which runs under the Alps, will inaugurate service to Italy, cutting travel time by 45-75 minutes within Switzerland and between the two countries. All InterCity trains from Basel/Bern/Zurich to Brig and on to Italy will use the new tunnel. Trains will run at speeds up to 124 mph. Visit [http://agent.raileurope.com]. (JM)
