Can I use One-Country (Switzerland) Interrail Pass on Bernina Express from Tirano to St Moritz?

Hi, I plan to travel by the Bernina Express from Tirano (Italy) to St Moritz (Switzerland). I won’t use the Inerrail Pass in Italy. All travel from Tirano onwards will be within Switzerland and I will not return to Italy. Does the one-country Interrail Pass (Switzerland) cover the Bernina Express journey from Tirano to St Moritz? Or do I need to buy the Global Interrail pass? Thanks

Yes, Tirano should be included. You can check on which train lines and destinations are included on the map found on this page: https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/tips-and-tricks/trains-europe/trains-country/trains-switzerland

Thank you very much BrendanDB. Yes, Tirano is covered by Interrail, but my question is whether I need a One Country Pass or a Global Pass - since the Bernina Express journey is within two countries, (Tirano, Italy to St Moritz, Switzerland).

If you do just go from Tirano to Switzerland it's considered to be a swiss journey that is covered with an one country pass for Switzerland. 

Here's a direct link that shows what is covered with a one country pass for Switzerland: https://www.interrail.eu/content/dam/_new-structure/doc/res/See_Switzerland_by_train_2024_Geltungsbereich.pdf

The map in the link shows what's included with a One-country pass Switzerland.

Tirano is the border point, don't worry. A One-country pass is fully valid.

Other exemples: you can take the Bernina Express bus between Tirano and Lugano or even the Locarno - Domodossola - Brig route, even though these touch Italy.

Thank you both Hektor and Thibcabe - yes that answers my question and saves a few bucks as well!
