I was planning to take the Glacier Express from zermatt to Celerina on 18 Jun, 2nd class. However when I went to the reservations website, it seems that only the 1st class option came up for online reservations. Furthermore, there is only 1 train available - the 904. Could it be that the 2nd class is all full on all available GEX?
If so, I may need to travel by regional trains along the same scenic route instead. I tried the SBB website and input From Zermatt to Celerina via Disentis-Muster but all the options thrown up involved the GEX. However, strangely, if I input From Zermatt to St. Moritz via Disentis-Muster, then there is an option for regional train at 10.39am and it seems that the 2nd-last station before St. Moritz is Celerina! If there is a stop at Celerina before St. Moritz, why can't I find this regional train route when I did my 1st search using Celerina as the destination.
Also, if I want to buy ticket from Zermatt to Celerina on regional trains along the GEX scenic route, how do I describe the route to the ticket counter staff/ Just say I want to go via Disentis?
Would really appreciate any advice i can get on this.
