The train left before 8AM and I wanted no more close calls, so I got up before 6. At that point, the twilight was still deep.

I rode the bicycle car to Sagliains. It was capacious.

After a switch of trains at Sagliains, a last glimpse of the Engadin, then back into the Vereina Tunnel — on purpose this time — to head back to Klosters.
