Introduction to railway industry in Switzerland

The first internal line was a 16 km line opened from Zürich to Baden in 1847. In 1901, the major railways were nationalised to form Swiss Federal Railways. During the first half of the twentieth century the railways were electrified and slowly upgraded. Three quarters of the Swiss rail network is at standard gauge (1 435 mm), comprising 3 773 km (total length - 5 323 km). Approximately 865 km is at a narrow 1 000 mm gauge.
