Tirano, Lombardia, Italia

As we were pulling into Tirano Station, we got our first glimpse of the Swiss railway carriages that operate on the line up into Switzerland. These were not in fact our carriages; I'm not even sure if these specific ones were used on the Bernina Express that day. However in any case, they are second-class carriages, whereas we had first-class carriages. Aside from the number of seats per row (and, if I recall correctly, leather seating), the windows in the first-class carriages had fewer pillars, providing a more panoramic view.

Still bloody awful to shoot through though; reflections here, there and everywhere.
