Photographer's Note

Chur - Arosa line of Rhätische Bahn was opened in 1914 and was an independent company before merger with RhB in 1942. However the railway line was practically disconnected from the rest of RhB network until 1997, when the original 2400 V DC electrification was converted to 11 kV AC system that is used on most of the Rhätische Bahn network.

Arosa railway line passes through magnificient mountain landscapes rising over 1000 m on it's 25 km journey from Chur to resort town of Arosa. The line has 21 tunnels and 41 bridges, the most remarkable being Langwies viaduct.

Most of train wagons are not usual bright red of RhB but blue ones advertising Arosa.
