You will note from the timetable link sent above that there is no direct Bernina Express between Chur and St Moritz but there is a regional train covering that route. On the SBB Timetable that Lucas referred to the Bernina Express is denoted BEX.
Depending on what time you plan to depart Tirano you can take a train direct to St Moritz so you could stop off there and then continue on a regular train to Chur. Then return direct from Chur to Tirano. You don't need to take the actual Bernina Express in both directions unless you want to do that.
In doing your planning keep in mind that at that time of the year sunrise is about 08:00 and sunset 16:30.
I emailed Rhaetian Railways (reservation@rhb. com) to ask when December reservations would be open. They responded "At the middle or at the end of October you can book Bernina Express online. When you want to do it now, we can do it for you. For the reservation we need all details of the travel: Route, 1st or 2nd class, number of travelers, the date. We also need your address and your credit card details (card number, holder, expiry date, security code) as guarantee.
You can give us this information by mail or by calling under 0041 81 288 65 65."
