Two DVD combo of Swiss Cab Rides

St. Moritz to Chur

113 minutes

A panoramic carriage ride on the Glacier Express through the Swiss Alps is an unforgettable experience: from the luxurious resort of St. Moritz to Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn. With a total journey time of around 8 hours on one of the slowest express’ trains in the world, you pass over 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels, leading through the Alpine Passes of the Albula, the Oberalp and the Furka. In this program we get a driver’s-eye view of the line in glorious sunny weather as we climb aboard locomotive Ge4/4 #625 belonging to the Rhaetian Railway, as we travel the first part of the journey along the spectacular Albula Pass line, which with its bridges and helical tunnels, leads us to Chur; overcoming an altitude difference of 1191 meters in a distance of around 90 km. The Albula section is very busy with tourist, interregional and freight trains; with frequent passing points situated along the route. We head down the Landwasser Valley then along the straight track to Reichenau-Tamins and to the Rhein Valley; and the double-track main line through to our finishing point at Chur. At the entrance to Chur station Ge 4/4 #628 awaits to take the train forward up to Disentis, a journey which we will feature in a future cab-ride program. Filmed in July 2018.


Chur to Disentis

71 minutes

After the junction station at Reichenau-Tamins we diverge off the St. Moritz route and in to the Vorderrhein Valley, a river now every much in its youth. We are soon in a wild deep gorge cut by the river with rushing water, white rocky walls and wide woods; even the orchids bloom in this little paradise. The gorge can be discovered and explored on foot or by mountain bike, thanks to a dense network of paths. On board the Glacier Express we are a prized and important service having priority over other trains on the line, with our panoramic carriages allowing travelers to immerse themselves in the passing scenery. Beyond Valensas the valley opens up and soon we are at the large town of Ilanz, where, shortly after the station the line in to the Valser factory is witnessed – this is one of the largest mineral water producers in Switzerland. Two trains a day leave the facility taking palletised water to the transfer facility at Landquart. The 30 km between Ilanz and Disentis is uphill with gradients of between 1.4 and 2% as the line climbs the 430 metres up to Disentis where our journey comes to an end. Filmed in glorious summer sunshine in July 2018.
