Does the Bernina express stop at any stations between St. Moritz and Tirano regardless of picking up or dropping of passengers as we have paid for reserved seats to Tirano from St. Moritz and now due to the no go zone into Italy we need to disembark before the Italian Border. Can anyone help with this Question look forward to your reply.

Hi Mr. Aussie,

Please find the latest information about the coronavirus and travel restrictions here: www.myswissalps.com/forum/topic/does-the-corona-virus-affect-trips-to-switzerland. You can currently reach Tirano but can't leave the station, so you can only travel back. It's recommended to get off in Switzerland though.

The long distance Bernina Express trains (ie those starting at Chur and Landquart, rather than the ones that traverse just the Bernina railway starting at St Moritz) normally run non stop from le Prese to Tirano. The last station within Switzerland is Campocologno, which the normal local regional trains stop at.

If the RhB doesn't modify its timetable given the current situation, one would have to get off the Bernina Express at Le Prese.

The big problem is: getting off at Le Prese means that you miss the Brusio open spiral viaduct and the beautiful lake south of Le Prese - two highlights of the Bernina railway.
