For Suburbano and Regionale only 2nd class is available. A ticket for
two for whole journey only cost EUR 25.00

While on the subject of Chiasso, I'm visiting Lugano in August and had thought about filming trains at Chiasso. I've been told that it is difficult to film freight there due to the layout of the yards.Has anybody attempted photography or filming there. Any advice would be useful.
Thanks in anticipation

Re: New GEX concept

OL.Guerbetal
 

These days, RhB and MGB published a press release with some indications that are different from the published timetable project. So there was a good reason, why MGB didn't publish anything. The points to mention:

- Three instead of four pairs of trains (as the timetable project indicated).

- No more GEX to Davos, all three to St. Moritz and combined with existing RE trains.

- No more subsidies for GEX.

- Connecting GEX-bus from Chur via Lenzerheide to Davos.

Maybe I was just lucky but IR2261 produced a pair of Re 4/4''s when I saw it last month:

The EC Luzern-Milan-Luzern did produce the Re 4/4'' and four coaches when seen:

As you can see, the conditions had changed somewhat from the Friday to the Saturday morning! Such is the Gotthard.

If you go on sbb.ch you can select Chiasso to Milano Centrale. Select trains that have the notation IC or EC (Intercity or Eurocity) and avoid ones noted RE. It will also show you whether it is a direct train or not (most direct trains will only stop in Como). You can also book the return via Domodossola/Brig on the site.

Thanks again for your help. The slight complication is that I will leave it until the evening before, when I've seen the weather forecast to decide what to do the following day and alter my plans accordingly.

Do the automated ticket machines allow you to purchase international tickets and accompanying reservation? I will be staying in Erstfeld and there is no manned booking office, so would require a short trip down to Fluelen, if I was to buy one in advance from a booking office.

Regards,
Tim.

But make sure you get the correct ticket. At least some of the Chiasso to Milan tickets sold by the SBB are for use on local services only (Chiasso is the terminus of one of Milan's "S-Bahn" lines), and would not be valid on your Eurocity.

That limitation is certainly true of the tickets sold from SBB ticket machines in the Lugano area. Not sure if the same applies to tickets sold from ticket offices, but worth checking.

You can buy a Chiasso - Milano ticket at most manned railway
stations in Switzerland. So you could just buy it at a convenient
time in advance.

Can you advise how much a first class ticket Chiasso - Milan return via Brig is please?

I will be travelling on a Swiss Pass within Switzerland.

Tim, if you know your date of travel in advance could you not purchase a ticket from Chiasso to Milano online in advance on the Trenitalia website?

Thanks very much both of you. I was unaware of the service from Luzern. This is perfect as it follows the southbound IR service, which I will catch from Erstfeld to Bellinzona and then change to the EC running 10 minutes behind it, to continue to Milan.

There is only a 10 minute wait at Chiasso on this service for the loco change. Is it possible to purchase an onward ticket from Chiasso to Milan onboard the train, or will I have to rush out at Chiasso and purchase one? I will be travelling on a Swiss Pass within Switzerland.

So this is twice the same source (Patrick Rudin contributed to the Geramond book).

However, the whole renumbering doesn't make sense. But then it could be one of those "workshop secrets", which never appear in official papers.
Because they made something else than what they reported...
