Map of most scenic Eurail routes?

Has anyone discovered or created a map of the most scenic routes available for travel with a Eurail pass? 


Also, I understand from the Eurail website that many of the scenic routes require reservation fees.  Is that right, and are the prices pretty reasonable?

Here is information on some of the scenic routes in Switzerland. On all routes it is possible to travel without reservation if you avoid the panoramic trains/waggons and use the regional trains or the normal waggons that are connected to some of the panoramic trains.

Its about reverse; but its more a case of picking the right normal trains and NOT the expensive and praise too much to over-excited tourists special panorama cars (its mostly in the swiss). Then its ´free´ or no extra to pay.

There used to be country sections in main site also mentioning what in that country would be thought of as being scenic lines, but there was a recent reshuffle and not that easy to find.

In a free newsppr I got last week which reprinted some CNN (or whatever) article about 10 ´most scenic´ rides in the world there were 4 in EUR, from what I recall:

Swiss: bernina to ITaly, St Moritz-Tirano

FRance: little yellow metro de Pyrenees (from Perpignan west into mountains)-I never ever see this mentioned here, whereas other german sites swear by it and go out of their way to ride it

GB/Scot: toward Fort William an the western Hebrides.

NOrway: Flamsbanan, just east of Bergen- ´NO in a nutshell´ (only discount with pass)
