Re: Zürich - Basel and Zürich Bern before the Heitersberg tunnel

Before 31.05.1981 all Zürich-Bern trains ran on the Olten-Luzern line as far as Aarburg-Oftringen and then to Rothrist (the route still taken by local trains) . The "Bornlinie" reduced the Olten-Rothrist distance by 1048m and made it faster as the new line is partly 140 km/h
