The railway line across the Bernina Range of the Swiss Alps is among the world’s great train rides, a singular feat of 20th Century engineering. The route is owned and operated by Rhätische Bahn (Rhaetian Railway) and has been declared a World Heritage Site.
The journey begins in Chur, the oldest town in Switzerland, snakes through the canton of Graubünden, and five hours later rolls into the final station Tirano, a small Italian town just across the Swiss border.
This image of the Church of St. Cassian in Sils im Domleschg was taken from the moving train on our way back to Chur. The light was fading fast and the ISO had to be bumped to 1600.
