Standseilbahn Linth-Limmern is a funicular railway of the Linth–Limmern pumped storage plant in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland. The line of 3778 m in a tunnel has a difference of elevation of 882 m at an incline of 24%. The single track has a passing loop for the descending car.
Built in 2013 for a transport capacity of 215 tons, the funicular moved the four transformers of the hydroelectric plant from Tierfehd at 816 m to the machinery cavern of the Limmern plant at 1697 m. This made it the highest capacity funicular.
Since the completion of the plant expansion, the line is used by staff and visitors of the hydroelectric plant. It is owned by Kraftwerke Linth-Limmern AG (KLL), a joint venture of Axpo and the Canton of Glarus.
The lower station is accessed through a short tunnel from Tierfehd, near the aerial cableways to Kalktrittli and Baumgartenalp. The upper station is in the machinery cavern near the dam of Limmernsee. Another underground funicular leads from there to Muttsee.
The funicular was built by Garaventa. A tunnel boring machine (TBM) with a diameter of 8 meters was used to excavate the tunnel.
