Google Street View reaches trains, rides the Swiss Alps

Google Street View comes to Albula-Bernina line

Google has now mounted its Street View trike onto the front of a Rhaetian Railways train to capture nearly 76 miles of the Albula-Bernina line in Switzerland. Located in the Swiss Alps, the UNESCO World Heritage site offers breathtaking views of lakes, snow-capped mountains, and forests. The images are now available on Google Maps and in a devoted gallery.

The images represent a near year-long project from Google, which also recently captured images from along the Amazon river in South America.

This is the first time Google has put its Street View cameras onto a train. The company has already been on roads, parks, trails, and even inside buildings in its effort to bring real-life images of the world to computer screens.
