- "Simplon Tunnel" Ron b. 19/11/2014
Quite an historic journey through to Milan and the engineering marvel of the Simplon tunnel. Train was great. Only trouble was there is a big gap during the day for trains through to Milan. We came from Chamonix to connect, but the earliest train just missed the morning services through to Milan. Had 4 hours to kill in Brig as a result. A service in the middle of the day would have been nice.

The train was on time, seating comfortable and the carriage clean, which is expected on a modern European rail system. However I am astounded that in this day and age the paper tickets that are mailed to overseas customers are still required. Why cannot e-tickets be used?
