>> Hi, we are in 3 people and we will have luggage and need to change at the following train stations. Have we allowed ourselves enough time to get on and off with our luggage or should we be catching a later train:
Arrive Goschen 12.02 Depart for Andermatt at 12.11 (9 minutes changeover time)
Arrive Andermatt at 12.21 Depart for Disentis at 12.28 (7 minutes changeover time)
Arrive Disentis 13.39 Depart for Chur at 13.44 (5 minutes changeover time)
As I have no idea how much time is needed, any advice would be appreciated.
It looks like you have planned each sector separately, as the standard transfer time at Göschenen is just 2 minutes - it is a very small station!
- If you are arriving at Göschenen at 12:02, you will arrive on Platform 1. If you are departing Göschenen for Andermatt at 12:11, you will be departing from Platform 13.
- There is an earlier train for Andermatt at 12:04 leaving from Platform 11, which you could probably catch if you wanted to, but it really doesn't make much difference which one you catch - you will still be departing Andermatt at 12:28 regardless.
However, don't imagine you have to traipse across 12 platforms at Göschenen to get from Platform 1 to Platform 13!
Göschenen has 3 platforms on the main line (Platforms 1, 2 and 3, with raised platforms) and 3 on the line to Andermatt (Platforms 11, 12, 13 without raised platforms). That's all!
The Platform 1 building has Platform 1 on one side of it, and Platform 11 on the other side. So you will just have to walk through or around that building to get to Platform 13, which is two tracks over from Platform 11 (see attached pictures).
Andermatt station is just as small.
Every time I've changed trains at Disentis/Mustér, there has been no need to change platforms - the train to Chur was either on the same track, or on the other side of the same platform (I can't remember which). Quick and easy, anyway.
