We started out in Lauterbrunnen in the morning, heading to Berne, Lausanne then Martigny. When we got to Martigny we looked for the platform and schedule which we found and were very confused by. It looked like the Mont Blanc train which we had read so much about was actually a train to Vallorcine then a full hour wait until a bus to Chamonix. We were disappointed but waited an hour for the next train and got on it, we have eurail passes so the whole trip from Switzerland to France was free! We were so blown away by the Mont Blanc train!! It was scary and breathtaking and beautiful I just wish it went the whole way! We got off at Vallorcine and waited the hour for the bus, got on excited to arrive in Chamonix soon and found that it only drove one stop to Argentière and everyone got off. We had no idea what was going on and there was no indication this would happen on the pamphlet we had received nor anyone we spoke to along the way working for the railway! We waited another 30 minutes for another train to Chamonix which took another 30 minutes on the train. All together the hour of travel took 4 hours. We had left the accommodation in Lauterbrunnen at 6.30am and arrived at the accommodation in Chamonix at 6pm that night.. I just am disappointed at the lack of information for the traveller, the part of track under construction has been out of use for over 3 years! It was fun but I wish we had of known this before we left in the morning.
