The world’s steepest funicular railway is open to the public in Switzerland now.

Keeping everything in mind, the railway’s cylindrical carriages have been specifically made used to ensure passengers can stay upright upon inclination. Even the floors are designed to move about to keep passengers from falling over in their 4-minute journey.

The railway runs from the town of Schwyz up 110m (328ft) to the car-free Alpine village of Stoos.

The Stoos Bahn took 14 years to build for 52m Swiss francs (£40m; $53m). This new train line will unite communities as well as provide a new tourist attraction.
