Old photos of Furka – Oberalp (1980)

These beautiful pictures of the Furka – Oberalp (FOR) date from 1980. They show the trains on the Oberwald – Gletsch – Realp section of the FO line just before the digging of the Furka tunnel and thus before the abandonment of this section.
In the photos at the station in Gletsch, note the Rhone glacier, which is still visible from the valley floor.
