Today we take a closer look at some of the more impressive locations you can look forward to as you explore this wonderful Swiss route.
A visit to Arosa Linie: Chur – Arosa wouldn’t be complete without seeing the famous Langwieser Viaduct. Constructed between 1912 and 1914 to cross the Plessur River valley, it was the first railway bridge anywhere in the world to possess a span of 100 metres. This is probably one of the World’s most visually appealing concrete structures.
At the time of construction Arosa Linie: Chur – Arosa was the most expensive route on the Rhaetian Railway network. This was mainly due to the substantial civil engineering structures that the route is famous for. Numerous tunnels and bridges were constructed, along with Rockfall shelters much like the ones found at Sassal. These unique structures prevent the inevitable falling rocks from the mountainside causing problems for unsuspecting drivers.
Due to the mountainous region, the weather can vary greatly depending on the time of year you visit. As your train climbs through the mountains you are guaranteed to see snow across the hills for much of the year. Arosa experiences a Subarctic Climate, which brings incredibly cold long winters. The pure white of a snow-covered landscape offset by the bright livery of the Rhätischen Bahn’s Locomotives and stock naturally leads to some amazing shots.
Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks, we will be showing off even more of the Arosa Linie: Chur - Arosa screenshots and videos. You can look forward to interviews, detailed developer videos, and more. Make sure you don't miss anything on Arosa Linie by following @trainsimworld on Twitter and Facebook.
