Interactive Guide

According to Le Monde, rail travelers in Switzerland can borrow (for 6 Euros) an interactive audio guide as they take the train on one of two routes. From the (google) translated page, it would appear that the audio guide is GPS (or geolocalised) based, the practical upshot of which is to provide commentary at specific points along the route. There is also a guide to local amenities when you get off the train, which is also available in English. The trial should last three years, after which it could be extended to other SNCF routes.
