it seems that the centivalli railway is back in order after being unavailable due to a landslide. But it seems that now I can get tickets and see routes through SBB and the notice on the centovalli railway website is gone.
I am wondering how to ensure that we do indeed travel on this scenic route. We are coming from First (Grindelwald) and so well make a lot of connections.
First question: one of the trains is from Speiz to Domodossola and on the travel pass validity map, part of the route is solid like and part is dashed (meaning 50% off). But because we board where it is covered, do we need to buy tickets for the portions that seem not to be covered? How does that work? We have full Swiss travel pass.
Second question: at different times there seems to be different trains going from domodossola. One is labeled TRENO PANORAMICO. Another is labeled Centovalli Express. Both of them go on the centovalli railway, no? Is one better than the other? Can you open the windows on either of those trains? The centovalli express one seems to stop at Intraga but the TRENO PANORAMICO goes all the way to Losone..
we are taking this tomorrow morning. I assume like most trains here we don’t need to reserve in advance..
