What is it with the Swiss and tunnels? According to a video report on the swissinfo website, extra space has been blasted in the new Gotthard basis tunnel to accommodate a railway station.

To view the news report go to the multi media section and select the "Tunnel stop" news item

Hmm? I can understand the need for fire stations in tunnels in the light of recent(ish) tunnel fires, but a station under a mountain? The only solution I can come up with is that it will be a goods depot leading to a vast array of vaults where they will store all the gold etc. deposited there during WW2.
