Remarks & Notes 
Finally! It took three visits to this place and 10 trains to get this one right, with nice sunlight, the proper train and timing... An ABe 8/12 "Allegra" unit carries hikers and bikers from Filisur to Davos, and catches a glimpse of daylight as it emerges from the Wiesen I tunnel and crosses the small Bärentritt bridge, only to enter the Bärentritt tunnel right after that.

Lying there on my belly and letting the camera hang down to get a mostly branch-free shot onto the scene earned me some strange looks, and I had to explain to a pair of hikers that I'm not trying kill my self, just waiting for a train ;)
