Some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world.  Beautiful shots.  Weather co-operated with you.  I spent a couple weeks in Switzerland in November one year and it was foggy every day.  Now I see what I missed.

Very nice photos Dave. The climb out of Andermatt is also on a rack as the grade is 11% all the way to Nätschen.

One minor point, when refering to the Rhaetian Railway you should use a lower case "h" i.e. "RhB". The RHB is officially the abbreviation for the Rorschach Heiden Bergbahn, which climbs from the town of Rorschach on the Bodensee(Lake Constance), to the mountain town of Heiden.
