We visited the Langwies-Viaduct near Arosa on the same trip we visited the Waldenburgerbahn, featured in a previous album , and the Chur-Arosa-Bahn was the last piece of the RhB we have not set foot on before. We could not travel on it to the terminus but we did manage to take a photo of a descending train on the well-known landmark, built four years after the groundbreaking new construction of the two Újsinka viaducts on the Fogaras - Brassó mainline in Hungary by Professor Szilárd Zielinsky (now: Sinca Noua, Romania), of a very similar design. The woodworks of the construction, like always before on the RhB, were of course managed by Richard Coray.

As the material I have is far from being exhaustive I am not going to go deep into the history of the ChA, instead please follow our track on to the Albula Railway!
