Chur to Arosa

Our Arosa Express comes out of the yard to pick us up


The locomotive is ready for its climb. The Chur station is at 2,000 feet elevation, and the Arosa Station is at 5,700 feet


We're ready to board


The train departed on-schedule at 10:08 AM


The mountains around Chur are seen through the train window as we leave the station


Arosa is only five miles away as the crow flies, and twelve miles by rail, but the beautiful trip takes a little over an hour












We arrive at Arosa at 11:09 AM


Looks good from both ends



Arosa to Chur


Our late-afternoon train back to Chur has an additional coach



We got off at the Chur city stop rather than the railway station as it was a downhill walk to the hotel from there
