Rail Transport In Switzerland
The Swiss rail network is noteworthy for its density,[13][14] its coordination between services, its integration with other modes of transport, timeliness[15][16] and a thriving domestic and trans-alp freight system. This is made necessary by strong regulations on truck transport,[17] and is enabled by properly coordinated intermodal logistics.[18] In 2015, with 5,323 kilometres (3,308 mi) network length, Switzerland
Switzerland

Virtually 100% of its network is electrified, except for the few tracks on which steam locomotives operate for tourism purposes only. There are 74 railway companies in Switzerland
