Remarks & Notes 
Ge 4/4 II # 621 with "Traveco" publicity paint scheme is crossing the 164 meter long and 89 meter high Solis viaduct between Tiefencastel and Solis, pulling the Regio Express 1132 from St.Moritz to Chur. On this day, there was the 6 car permanently coupled ALVRA set only, the 6 cars of the Glacier Express to Zermatt followed in a separate train. This because the weight of 12 cars would have been too much for this type of locomotive between Bever and Spinas. The "BoBo II" type is seldom seen with passenger trains on the Albula line.
