Swiss Plan to Top World’s Longest Train Tunnel

Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland.

Japan has long held the title for world’s longest train tunnel with their Seikan Tunnel in Japan. That tunnel was completed nearly 25 years ago and it is 33.49 miles.  A lot of it is submerged in water, but now the Swiss are throwing their hats into the ring with a train tunnel that will go through “the Alps, traveling between Zurich and Milan in about two and a half hours.”

Now what the reports fail to mention is how much we’re going to have to pay to get on board.  But, surely it will be such a tourist marvel most will pay to say they’ve taken the ride.  Read here to see when it will be completed and more.
