RhB Albula

The Albula stretch of the Rhaetian railway lies in the Swiss canton of Grisons and, with its 144 bridges and 42 tunnels, it is one of the most spectacular metre-gauge railways in the world.

To make the long train journey through alternating complete darkness and bright daylight easier for the passengers, the seven new articulated trains are being fitted with LED dynamic lighting developed by SBF. With external sensors, the interior lighting automatically adjusts to the external light conditions and thus keeps the human biorhythm in balance.
