Rhätische Bahn Ge4/4-III electric locomotive 646 arrives in Filisur (Switzerland) with an evening train from St Moritz to Chur on Sunday night 21 December 2008. Although the Hotel Grishuna offers tempting refuge from the cold, the lone passenger off the recently-arrived train from Davos (sitting behind the photographer) is setting off for the somewhat treacherous walk down to the village below. Although Switzerland’s famed Albula Line is very easy on the eye at best of times, I went out of my way to try and capture it at night, for that is when it seems to take on some true magic. And yes, it was cold!
