Hi guys,
So the CBC ran this little piece on the new tunnel, the world's longest, being opened. They didn't even say where it was!?
But here's a quick look at the entrance to it.

I also like the modest fireworks going off as the trains emerge from the other ends....had this been the US, you'd think there was a war going on with all the fireworks, likely. ;) :)

I think it would have been at least appropriate to mention where this was, why it was there, and that it was the Swiss National Railway.
Rather impressive compared to VIA rail. Though the Moffat Tunnel is pretty impressive, too.
