Charter Section Glacier Express

The boards at Andermatt indicated that an unscheduled train was due to arrive.

Our curiosity was piqued.

This turned out to be a charter using a Glacier Express train set.

I’ve augmented the views of the train descending to Andermatt with a few images of another Glacier Express set parked in Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn’s sidings at Andermatt.

In mid-April, my friends and I visited Andermatt and were fortunate to catch this charter of Glacier Express equipment descending the rack railway grade toward Andermatt.

Express is a relative term. The train isn't very fast; but the views  available from its windows are stunning.

I made this view of Glacier Express equipment resting static on sidings in Andermatt. Can equipment stored out of service be called a 'train?'
