A unique opportunity to experience something spectacular. Travel on the Rhaetian Railway’s Bernina Monster, the world’s only steam-powered snowplough still in operation, and you are guaranteed to be close to the action when operations are underway!
Up to ten RhB staff are needed to pilot the Xrot 9213 steam-powered snowplough through the several metre-high walls of snow along the Bernina Line. The 60-ton monster is over one-hundred years old and the 3-ton rotating blade has no problem in casting the snow aside. It has even been known to free the track of rocks and whole trees!
