Remarks & Notes 
On 1st june, the world's longest railway tunnel was officially inaugurated, the 57 kilometer long Gotthard Base Tunnel through the Alps from Erstfeld to Bodio. The very first train which run from north to south was this Intercity tilt train ICN (2 trainsets in multiple), which brought about 700 people, who got a free ticket through a lottery, in the Ticino. At 12.49 PM the train is leaving the east bore in Pollegio near Bodio, accompanied by some fireworks.

Sparks fly over the railroads from celebration fireworks, maintenance and repair "sparks", locomotive exhaust fireworks, and nature's light show.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
