The Alptransit portal places the NRLA in the historical context of the evolution of Switzerland's rail network since the end of the 19th century. It contains explanatory texts, source materials, photos, films and visualisations from a century of rail history and is updated with new content on an ongoing basis. Please send us corrections via e-mail.

alptransit-portal.ch is provided by the Federal Office of Transport and the Swiss Federal Archives. It is intended to provide information on the New Rail Link through the Alps (NRLA), one of Switzerland's biggest transport infrastructure projects. The portal was commissioned by the NRLA supervisory delegation of the Swiss Parliament.
