long train tunnels

New Member

I don't mind regular train tunnels but will be riding the train through the lötschberg base tunnel and simplon tunnel and had some questions.
my main question is - how rare is it for the train to stop mid tunnel in either of these tunnels?
I will be traveling southbound in both cases
also, assuming typical conditions, how long are you in each tunnel?
Thanks, James


Hello @JamesWhite 

The train can stop in the tunnel due to special events such as waiting for another train or construction work on the line. However, we cannot say how often the train stops in the tunnel.

If you have problems during the trip pleas contact the personal on the train.

The ride through the Lötschberg tunnel takes 15 minutes and through the Simplon tunnel 20 minutes.

I wish you a nice day.

Kind regards.
