You may have spent money unnecessarily. Some Bernina Express from the north stop in Pontresina, some don't. I think the BEX from Chur officially omits Pontresina. Also, you do not have to travel on the Bernina Express from Chur, any local/regional train is free to board in Graubünden if you have the right valid pass. There are BEX trains starting at St Moritz
It is important to understand the difference between the 'Bernina Express' and the 'Bernina Railway'. The Bernina Railway is the (originally independent) railway line from Tirano - St Moritz - Tirano. It became part of the Rhätische Bahn* (RhB) in 1943.
The Bernina Railway itself does not connect to Chur
It has regular 'normal' train services :
The Bernina Express title designates one or two trains a day operated by special coaches (with supplement payable) which include a journey on the Bernina Railway
