1. Does the SBB now charge extra to take a train on the old Gotthard and Lotchberg mountain routes? I am not interested in the Gotthard Panorama special train. I sometimes want to switch trains between Andermatt and Goschenen (in either direction) such as going from Chur to Erstfeld or Bellinzona.
2. Is EVERY train on the RhB/MGB route from Chur to Andermatt considered GEX and requires an extra charge? I am not interested in tourist trains and just want to ride 2nd cl in a "local" train. I read somewhere that in the last few years the schedules at Chur were rearranged such that taking any train at a convenient morning time forced you to be on a GEX.
3. Does every MOB ride require a surcharge?
4. Can I pay the conductor any surcharge fees on the train or must I do it ahead of time in a station?
