Modern narrow-gauge interurban up into the mountains

This week's European train cab video: The meter-gauge Stubai Valley line up into the mountains from Innsbruck, Austria. Video is about an hour long, but with nice scenery.

This line uses the meter-gauge tracks of the Innsbruck streetcar system for the first half of its run, then goes on a dedicated right of way up the mountains.

Speeds are very slow -- in the 20 mph range -- but there are long stretches of 4.6 per cent grade and lots of tight curves.

Anyway, something different to look at.
