Ron on the road again #1

Next few days will have some of Ron’s Swiss travels, transport with a bit of scenery thrown in for good measure.  I just hope he’s home by March 29th….

An early start – left home at 0445 GET for 0725 flight from Heathrow to Basel.  Landed 15 minutes early but a bumpy landing due to strong winds.  Just missed bus into town and as a result had to wait 45 minutes for next train to Chur, not helped by a late change of platform.  Just arrived in Filisur at 1500 CET.  Hope to make quick trip to Davos and back at 1600.

He does know how to have a good time!!!!!

A famous spot – RhB train entering tunnel from Landwasser Viaduct – looks better in Switzerland than on a GWR branch line?

Took 1604 to Davos Platz and am now waiting for the 1731 back to Filisur.  There was a lot more lying snow which I believe is due to the valley not getting the sun.  Here are some more photos taken from the platform.
