Klosters to Davos shut due to high winds, elsewhere, an MOB unit has been partially blown over.

Several other lines have problems, mostly in a line south from Basel and west thereof.

more problems today, Disentis to Andermatt shut due to heavy snow, no replacement bus service (not surprising)
various other lines shut due to high wind, derailment, snow etc

Yes the driving trailer was blown over at Lenk, no reports of injuries I've seen thankfully.

Hi Paul, Glenn,
The BBC is now reporting, amongst other sources, that eight people were injured.
Blick suggests that there were a total of 22 passengers.
Picture and then actual video of derailment linked by second contributor on this thread:-

That's a real bummer; first there wasn't enough snow and now they get buried in the stuff. :-s :-s

Today the Glacier express route from Chur to Zermatt is closed in no less than 5 separate places due to the weather.
Chur to Arosa and Cinuous to Scuol are also closed, avalanche danger seems to be at an all time high. More snow due later this week.

I've been looking at various photos and videos.....seems there is a crazy amount.

it's the worst season for avalanche danger for 20 years. With the current raise in temperatures coupled with more snow due in a couple of days, problems look set to continue.
