As the name suggests, the SBB Jura south foot line runs along the southern Jura mountain range. The driver's cab ride starts at Lausannetrain station, we drive north via Yverdon-les-Bains and Neuchâtel along the two large lakes of Neuchâtel and Biel to Biel / Bienne. There we change to the IC via Solothurn towards Olten, where the southern Jura line ends. The Jura south foot line also serves as an alternative route to the main line Olten - Lausanne via Bern and Friborg. The private railway OeBB (Oensingen-Balsthal-Bahn), which is also included on this disc, starts at the SBB train station in Oensingen, which is on the southern Jura foot line, and leads through the Klus from Balsthal to the train station in Balsthal, 4 km away.
• Lausanne - Biel - Olten (1hr 54m)

Starting in 2010, Andrew Perren, together with his film partner Daniel Felix, set about on an ambitious project to film ALL the railway lines of Switzerland! This had not been done before, and the plan was to shoot them all from the cab (footplate or drivers-eye-view) and release them on DVD and Blu-ray. A decade later 44 titles have been released, with a further nine to complete over the next 2-3 years.
In addition to the well-known main lines in the country, the duo has filmed museum lines, freight-only lines, some very special lines and some closed and abandoned lines. Contacting more than 50 railway-companies for permission to film, this is not a full-time job, just a hobby and Daniel currently works full time for the Swiss National Television.
To introduce Videoscene customers to the Perren range, we have selected ten new or best-selling titles for this catalogue. These range from the well-known Gotthard line to some more of Switzerland's scenic and breathtaking railways. Included in the first batch here is a visit to Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe at 3454 meters above sea level and some of the stunning mountain railways in the Mont Blanc area.
Whether you're a seasoned traveller or just fancy something a bit different, we hope these titles prove popular and enjoyable.
