About the &quot;Jungfrau Railway Train Tour&quot;: The tunnel (red) track/path is not precise, mostly an outline, due to no found official altitude and position data avaiable. Station positions along track/path should be fairly close to real world. Recommended to be viewed as a 'Play tour' in Google Earth with the '3D buildings' and terrain layer enabled and a viewing angle above 80 degrees for touring track/path. To adjust viewing angle, choose menu 'Tools', 'Options', Click the tab 'Touring' and change the 'Camera Tilt Angle' to above 80 degrees. The default is 60 degrees. To play a specific path track, mark the 'three dot icon' path track, press the 'Play tour' option and enjoy the train ride.
