The 42 tonne transport will take place on Tuesday, 18 December 2018, by road. The timetable is as follows:
Transport times, 18 December 2018
- Departure from Rohrbach at around 7.00 h
- Passes through Thun at around 8.30 h
- Planned arrived in Grindelwald between 10.00 and 10.30 h
The passage by the Staldenkurve (just before Grindelwald) and the unloading in Grindelwald Grund (by rail) should be especially interesting. For Jungfrau Railways, a photographer and a filmmaker will record the transport on the last section of the route as well as the unloading on site. Photos and footage will be available on www.jungfrau.ch/en-gb/corporate/v-cableway-project/project/ afterwards.
