which Alpine pass was crossed by train in 1854 for the first time ever?

The Semmering pass. Whoever travels from Vienna to Triest has to cross it. The train that overcomes the pass for more than 150 years uses the same name. Known as "Semmeringbahn" it makes its way along a series of complexly designed bridges. Today the mountains are easily accessible by car.
