Just buy Your 1st or 2nd class ticket at the airport train station. There are plenty of information boards around look for your destination and platform number. Note the board above the platform that tells you where the 1st and second class cars are on the train and their stopping position on the platform. Simple. There are no seat reservations on "normal" trains in Switzerland so sit anywhere that's available. When you arrive in Chur the mountain train is waiting for you at sn adjacent platform and again pick the appropriate 1st or 2nd class carriage.

p.s. The Albula line trip from Chur up to St Moritz is a memorable testament to Railway genius. Best views on the right hand side.

I think you may have already answered my question but I would like to check. I had planned to go from Chur to Tirano and back but time is not on my side. Is the trip from Chur to St Moritz still really scenic with the twists and turns and high viaducts that this railway is known for? What do we miss by not going all the way to Tirano?

Hi Andrew, please ask future questions in a new tread instead of jumping on an old one, old tread are rarely opened again after some time, as everybody thinks he has given his five cents already.

To answer your questions, it would be helpful to know where you are coming from and what is your next destination. The itinerary over the Bernina pass to Tirano or at least to Poschiavo is dramatically scenic, but also the journey on the Albula line (Chur to St. Moritz, part of the Glacier Express and the extension of the Bernina Express) is very scenic and the highest viaduct is on this part. There is an announcment before you reach it so that you will be ready to take a picture.
