In the Neuchâtel Jura there are 3 lines that are served by the transN railway company: 2 narrow-gauge and 1 standard-gauge line. These are rather shorter and unknown lines in a scenic and interesting area. The 4th line of the transN is the narrow-gauge suburban line from Boudry along Lake Neuchâtel to Neuchâtel Place Pury.
In the last film we drive the very short, disused route from Fleurier to St. Sulpice, which is now used by the RVT-Historique museum railway association.
Filmed between 2013 and 2014.

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.
These titles range from the well-known Gotthard line to some of Switzerland's most scenic and breathtaking railways. So, whether you're a seasoned traveller or just fancy something a bit different, we hope these titles prove popular and enjoyable.
