Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Chemin de fer Montreux - Glion - Rochers-de-Naye is an electrically operated rack and pinion railway in Switzerland, with a track gauge of 800 mm, which links the places mentioned in its title. The line as it currently exists was built by two independent companies, the Chemin de fer Glion-Rochers-de-Naye, which linked the two places in its title and opened in 1892, and the Chemin de fer Montreux-Glion, with which it made an end - on junction, and which opened in 1909. Prior to this opening in 1909 the GN line formed a cross -platform connection with the Chemin de fer funiculaire Territet-Glion, a feature which still operates today and forms part of the station at Glion. The line operates on 850 V DC with overhead electrical pick up. The line is built to a gauge of 800 mm and is totally a rack and pinion system based on that devised by Roman Abt.
