View of the Albula Railway, Switzerland

View through a panorama window of the Albula Railway in Switzerland. This railway links Thusis with the spa resort of St Moritz in Engadine . The large windows offered a great view of the Landscapes. Some places I even saw three times as there are some loops on the way.

Dome car  2nd class of Albula Railway

The Albula Railway links Thusis with St Moritz in Graubünden, Switzerland. Though I had to pay an extra fee, taking the dome car was a good decision. So I had a good view of upcoming sights like the Landwasser Viaduct

Power outlets on Swiss EuroCity

Power outlet at a Swiss Eurocity

On a journey with a Swiss EuroCity from Munich to Bregenz, I came across these two versions of power outlets (at the 1st class). I think it’s great that Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) is taking the different needs of travellers (and their notebooks) into account.
