>> So i would have to take the regular trains from Zermatt to Chur on 3 Dec 2018. 1. May I know if the regular trains have open windows that will open to allow me to see the scenery? i can't find pictures of the regular trains and their windows.
I have attached a photo of a window in a regional train.
You can see photos taken through the (closed) windows of a regional train attached to my post of Jan 9, 2018 - 3:27 AM on the following page:
There are some more photos here, some of which were also taken through the closed windows of a regional train:
>> 2.Will the trains zip by so fast that phototaking is not possible?
No, this is a mountain route, single track for most of the way, with climbs, descents, curves and viaducts. It is not a suitable track for high-speed trains. Sometimes the train will stop for a while on a short section of dual track to allow a train from the other direction to pass. It also stops at most stations along the way, unlike the Glacier Express.
>> 3. If i am taking the normal seats, is it safe to get onto a regular train without reservations?
Reservations are not possible on the regional trains. Services leave hourly throughout the day, so there is no shortage of seats.
