Hi!

During our journey accross Europe we will be taking the Bernina express from Chur to Tirano over the Alps. We will be arriving in Tirano the 29th of June, and are planning to travel to Milano from there.

However, on both the Railplanner app and Trenord's (the operator) website there are no trains on this stretch at this date. On Trenords website the usual schedule with trains several times a day stops the 26th of June. After that there is only one connection which says "not purchasable". Is this simply because they have not yet updated their website with summer timetables?

I cannot find any information about construction work on the line. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.


Here is the link to Trenord's website with the date I want to travel: [https://www.trenord.it/store/#/en/booking/step1?departure=TIRANO&destination=MILANO%20CENTRALE&from=20220629&fromstart=08:00&fromend=23:59](https://www.trenord.it/store/#/en/booking/step1?departure=TIRANO&destination=MILANO%20CENTRALE&from=20220629&fromstart=08:00&fromend=23:59)

Trains are showing from Colico to Milan on that date, which suggests the train timetable is uploaded and there is something happening between Colico and Tirano. Hopefully there will be some substitute bus services announced at some date closer. The Lombardy regional schedules only go up to 12th June and it's clear from them that some work is already going on with buses substituting for some local trains.

Use this link https://www.muoversi.regione.lombardia.it/planner/#/lines-timetable and enter RE8 as the line number, wait for the drop down list and see if it mentions any buses once the tables are updated for 13th June onwards.

If this trip is really not possible I suggest as an alternative the palma-express (timetable 90.631 at www.fahrplanfelder.ch), a bus trip from St.Moritz (10:25, leave with train Chur at 7:58) to Lugano (crossing the Maloja pass) and from there the train to Milano
