Notes from latest visit.
First tunnel out of Filisur heading for Bergŭn and the last one before arriving there are undergoing repairs. There are a large number of engineer’s vehicles stabled at Bergŭn, in the sidings, the platform normally used by the winter shuttle trains and also the line heading into the Museum. (C312 and BSW-4)
The first bridge out of Bergŭn towards Preda is being repaired.
The tunnel works display at Preda is now open, built into 3 logs are display cases with G scale locomotives and some wagons/coaches. This includes a Kiss Ge 6/6II, an LGB Ge4/4II and an LGB 20x loco. Total value around £3,500-£4,000. Any prospective visitors should bring a chain saw.
Two short sidings have been installed at Spinas they are not yet signalled or have overhead wiring. One bonus of the works is that there are now proper toilets inside the station building replacing the hole-in-ground versions that used to be outside. The alterations at St Moritz mean that currently, the station is split in two sections, there are no tracks connecting the Bernina side to the mainline side at present.
Arosa line trains are working in push-pull mode, railcar at the Arosa end.
Formations on this line were noted as :
BDt1721, B2448, A1263, 3506
BDt1751, B2441, A1268, 3502
BDt1722, B2435, A1269, 3507
All the coaching stock has a blue diamond on the coach ends below the blue triangle.

1458 Chur to St Moritz was 30 mins late at Samedan, caused a number of platform shuffles to fit everything in.
1708 Samedan to Pontresina was formed Be513, B2418, B2417, ABDt1715. All in the new two-tone red livery.
No reason was given for the delay, this train coveys a portion of the Glacier Express

notes going backwards from today.
Seen at Landquart, heading for St Moritz around 17:00
623, BDt1751, B2445, WS3913, B2443, A1265
Be 511 and 515 were in the sidings on their own.
Be514, B2412, B2414, ABDt1712 in use on Thusis - Chur trains
at Landquart Be512, B2411, B2413, ABDt1711
1521 Landquart to St Moritz :
625, A1254, B2382, B2366, B2297
Kueblis second platform under construction, underpass being installed, long passing loop in the Landquart direction.
Klosters Platz station forecourt being dug out, buses using small car park on cable car side of station, kiosk in temporary cabin on platform outside ticket office, Charlie's heisse marroni trailer is nowhere to be seen.
Be516, ABT1713 & ABDt1714 on Klosters to Davos shuttles
Be 513 etc still on Samedan to Pontresina shuttles, this seems to be as a result of regular late running of Chur to St Moritz services, worst one was yesterday's 30 minute late one.
You may have noticed an engineer's train head south through Filisur around 2030 or 2115ish, today's was 2030. It returns early in the morning, around 0645. Has 2x Ge4/4II as power.
The sidings at Spinas are in use, they are fitted with a derailer in case any stock rolls away (uphill, the sidings slope down to the buffer stops) Whilst there was stock in the sidings, the derailer was not in place.
The shunting loco at St Moritz was on the Bernina side, any shunt moves on the mainline side would have to be done by the main line locos.
