The train, which takes sightseers to the Jungfraujoch in the Bernese Alpes, carried 916,500 passengers in 2016, significantly fewer than the year before. In 2015, a record 1,007,000 made the journey.
Despite the decline, 2016 was still the second best performance recorded. And, at the price of CHF 218.80 for a first class round trip, brought in a lot of money.
The ski season saw a large drop in the number of passengers compared to last season. From the beginning of the season up until 2 January 2017, the Jungfrau Ski Region recorded 112,500 skier visits, a drop of 25 per cent on the same period last year, which saw 150,000.
The two-plus-hour train ride up from Interlaken takes you to the Jungfraujoch visitors center, 3,454 metres above sea level.
Construction of the line began in July 1896 and took until February 1912 to complete. 30 people died during construction.
