Eduard Gruner set down his visionary idea for the Gotthard Base Tunnel
as early as 1947 in his technical paper
"Reise durch den Gotthard-Basistunnel im Jahr 2000"

“Journey through
the Gotthard Base Tunnel
in the year 2000”.

The paper contains a description of the tunnel, which extended
for 50 kilometres or so from Amsteg to Biasca, with a station in Sedrun.
