Real Rail Adventures: Switzerland In this hour-long public television documentary, Wilson crisscrosses a nation that reveres railroads. Jeff’s mission: discover why the Swiss—and countless others around the globe—love trains. He wonders, “Is it the adrenaline rush of big machines, surging against probability up a mountainside? Is it the thrill of exploration—the way trains slice through remote areas, giving up-close views of inaccessible landscapes? Maybe it’s the nostalgia, the echoes of a time gone.” Jeff concludes, “Maybe we love trains because they’re just plain fun!”
