More questions about Swiss rail system and the Bernina Express?

Jump to last reply

Because of so many wonderful suggestions here I've changed my plans for the Swiss portion of our visit. We Will take the train directly from the airport in Zürich and travel to Pontresina. After three nights there we will do the Bernina express route to Tirano. I'm still trying to decide whether to use the local trains or the Bernina express. The regular train leaves Pontrsina at 9:04 and arrives at 11:12. Unfortunately, the train to Varenna leaves 3 minutes earlier. The Bernina express train leaves Pontresina at 9:52 and arrives in Tirano at 12:02. The train to Varenna leaves at 12:06. That leaves only four minutes to buy the ticket to Varenna and get on the train, is that possible?
