World's steepest railway opens in Switzerland

The world's steepest funicular railway has opened to the public in Switzerland.

Specially constructed cylindrical carriages have been used to ensure that passengers can stay upright.

The floors tilt, adjusting to the slope as the funicular climbs 110m (360ft) over a distance of 100m at the steepest point.

The Stoos Bahn took 14 years to build - two years longer than scheduled - at a cost of 52m Swiss francs (£40m; $53m).
