>> I am driving to Andermatt where I shall leave my hire car to board the Glacier Express to St Moritz for a two night stay.
I would like any advice please on a quick /cheap route back to Andermatt by train.
The fastest and most direct way back to Andermatt from St Moritz is the same way you went there: i.e. the Glacier Express route. That takes between 4.5 and 5 hours.
If you were willing to accept a longer travel time for the sake of seeing different scenery, one option would be to go via the Postbus over the San Bernardino Pass. That would take 5.5 hours.
To see details for this option, use the SBB timetable using St Moritz as your start point, Andermatt as your destination, and Bellinzona as a "via". (The route is St Moritz to Thusis (train); Thusis to Bellinzona via the San Bernardino Pass (PostBus), Bellinzona to Göschenen by train, and then a short hop back to Andermatt by train.)
Note that reservations are compulsory for the PostBus sector.
Information about the PostBus trip can be found at the link below, and there is also a link on that page to make a reservation online.
