Escaping the ‘beast’ #3

Ron’s daily quiz continues….

Question of the day

What passes hundred of feet below this town?

“The Swiss army tunnel network, that I understand makes the mountains a bit like cheese? Or more likely, some improbably long Swiss rail tunnel…”

Answer is the original Gotthard Tunnel.

“Mmm… not much point in poking your head out of the window of the gents trying to grab a photo of that!”

Switzerland Day 5

Woke up to find it was snowing. Went out of front door to see what it was like after breakfast. 30 minutes later all footprints had been covered. Was in and out of falling snow until mid morning. Trip today was round journey to Andermatt changing at Reichenau and Diseentis with the plan to stop at Disentis for a snack on way back but usual cafe appeared to be in darkness with no boards outside so came back to Chur for my snack.

View between Disentis and Andermatt including Oberalppass and view over Andermatt from the decent.

Chur and Andermatt stations (Andermatt was QUESTION of the day.) It was 1120 in Andermatt station and the Apres Ski Bar was well patronized. It was on front of my train back but did make use of it.
