Are the staff who work on the Italian section of the line, such as the station staff at Tirano, employed by the RhB and if so, are their conditions of employment the same as those of the RhB staff who work in Switzerland?

the RhB employs station staff in Tirano, as their facilities are separate from the FS station. Working conditions and work rules are certainly identical, and I would assume they are paid in Swiss francs not Euros.

In the new book "Abenteuer Berninabahn" the authors mention that the station master and two thirds of the staff must be Italian nationals.

Gion,

Thank you very much, I am most grateful.

It was something that I had been thinking about for some time.

Hi Nigel

The answer is yes, I had a nice chat with a young lady last Thursday when I was buying my "Graubunden Pass", she spoke perfect English.

Richard,

Thanks for that, very useful confirmation.

I think it is safe to assume that the Austrian section of the line from Scuol-Tarasp to Landeck would have been operated on a similar basis.

Hi Nigel

But don't give up on that happening (Scuol-Landeck), it's in The EEC Transport Plan, to provide better rail access to help the environment.

Also plans to extend a line from Northern Italy to Scuol as well.

Regards
