MARTIGNY. 1. Action Ordinaire de F50. 2. Action Priv. de F50. Folds. The company was formed 1902 to build a 18Km line from Martigny, in the Rhône valley, Switzerland, to the French frontier at Châtelard, on the north side of Mont Blanc, where it linked with a French line to Chamonix and St. Gervais, where it linked with the French national rail network. The line, with its 46 viaducts and bridges and 12 tunnels, took 4 years to build. The line, with electric power, still operates today, with the famous Mont Blanc Express trains. Not really an express, but it is a good name!
