Just a few days after they released Google Street View imagery in the Amazon, Google has now released imagery of the Swiss Alps aboard a Rhaetian Railway train.
Capturing this imagery was likely easier than capturing the Amazon imagery (or other creative Street View tools like the Street View snowmobile), because they were simply able to load the Street View Trike onto a flatbed train car and capture the imagery that way. The result is quite awesome, and here’s a video showing how they did it:
To see this new imagery for yourself, you can visit the Swiss Alps section of the Street View gallery, or fly there and see it in Google Earth by using this KML file. If you’ve not used Street View mode in Google Earth before, here are some tips to get you started.
