>> You have no idea how much this has helped me.
Glad it was useful!
>> Can you tell me how you tell which is the left or right side of the train?
It's not possible to tell, unfortunately :-(
>> We have heard that the left side is the best side to sit when going from St Moritz to Zermatt.
Sitting on the left would be my choice too, particularly for views of the Landwasser Viadukt. Best views through the Oberalppass are also on the left, but can also be enjoyed from the right hand side, as the windows are so big. Going through the Rhine Gorge, between Reichenau and Ilanz/Glion however, the best views are on the right.
Sitting on the "wrong" side does make taking photos a bit more difficult though. I've often found using the zoom is enough to avoid getting the heads of people on the other side of the train in my photos, however. And taking the photo from the other side often means you avoid getting reflections in the photo, which can be a bonus!
On one of my trips over the Landwasser Viadukt, we were seated on the "wrong" side, but like many others, were able to stand in the aisle next to the seats on the other side for the very short time it takes to go over the viadukt, and still got quite a good view.
