Remarks & Notes 
Railcars ABe 4/4 # 56 "Corviglia" and # 51 "Poschiavo" are pulling Regio 1625 from St.Moritz to Tirano through the iconic spiral of the viaduct of Brusio. In the rear of the train are two panorama cars of the BERNINA EXPRESS, which are surplus in this time of the year and added to regular passenger trains on the Bernina line, with a supplement of 5 swiss francs to pay. The viaduct was entirely renovated in 2011 and looks great. Inside the spiral you can see the three "Campascio"-granite figures "Grande Figura Femminile", "Unione Granitica" and "Mater Luce e Trapasso" of the homegrown stone sculptor "Kiki" (Christiano) Paganini, created in 1993 and placed there.
