No difference at all - same route and both are panoramic trains. :) I've only been on the Glacier Express but from what I've seen and heard they are pretty similar.

Hi spotlongcor,

If you want to go to St Moritz then stay on the Glacier Express. You will have to pay a reservation charge from Chur to St Moritz. Not sure how you resolve the problem of changing you Chur to Tirano for a St Moritz to Tirano trip. Maybe you can board your original Chur to Tirano train at Pontresina but you would need to check that with

There is no direct Bernina Express from Chur to St Moritz. The Chur to Tirano Bernina Express bypasses St Moritz.

Check the timetable looking for trains denoted as BEX here metable

There are of course other (non-Panoramic InterRegio/Regio) trains that run between Chur and St Moritz or Chur and Pontresina.
