In one of the thread, I read right side of the Bernina express will be good. I will be travelling from Chur to Tirano. So in this case, the first class has the seat composition of 1+2 (single seat on one side and two seats on other side). So which seat I have to choose for right hand seated. TRAVEL IS FROM CHUR TO TIRANO.
Are there any link (or Video) to view the first class and second class coaches (inside view) of Bernina express.

Please help me to decide and book the seats.

Hi Saravanan. The right side (heading south to Tirano) is indeed the best. However, it doesn't seem like you can specify this specific wish when arranging for your seat reservation. The 'map' of train coaches displayed when reserving your seats (through the link 'Bernina Express' under the header 'Other ways to arrange for seat reservation's on our seat reservation page) doesn't indicate in which direction the coaches will be travelling. And even if this was indicated, the coach could be attached to the train in reverse order. If this is important to you, you may try to contact the Rhaetian Railways by e-mail or phone and be specific about your preferences. I'm not sure if they can arrange seats at the right side of the train, but you could give it a try. Their phone number and e-mail address are mentioned at the seat reservation form. Good luck!
