Surprising the wife on our honeymoon with a ride on the Bernina Express. I'm a bit confused about the reservations, though. The day we want to travel, the train departing Chur is almost entirely booked, with no window seats available. However, if I look at the same date on rbh.ch with the trip originating in Filisur, there are lots of seats available, as well as many seats on the bus from Tirano to Lugano. I'm confused by this sudden availability of several good seats at Filisur. Do they add additional cars as they pass through the other towns after Chur?
Also, if we leave Chur around the same time the Bernina express departs and head to Filisur to switch to the Bernina carriage, will we be traveling on the same route as the Bernina Express?
Thanks for you help!
