Yes that is a beautiful image. Gornergratbahn for sure, but not Zermatt Bahnhof which is in the middle of the built-up town. Looks like Riffelalp halt which is just below the tree line and near the summit.

That's the summit station, taken from the walk up to the observatory and hotel.  Riffelalp station doesn't have the turret, and you can see the end of track on the left.

It's Riffelberg.  Riffelalp is farther down the hill.
