Very neat. RHB lists only one departure in January this year and it is already booked! 335chf p.p.... :(
Looks like the extra date noted on your link is just with the hotel package for uk guests (theoretically).

Definitely looks like fun! It would be great to get a photo or video of it in action too.

I'll bet this guy, whose job it was to remove snow from the front of a Bernina-line train at Tirano, wishes there were more of them!

Hi Alpenrose,

Nice photo of a pretty ordinary job.

There are plenty of videos on youtube (eg youtu.be/pfKCglgIO98) Search "bernina steam plough"
