The rail travel schedules from Orvieto, Italy to Luzern, Suisse are both interesting and surprising. All the early morning departures involve backtracking to Rome. Then to Milan to Chiazzo (from the released press photos) to Arth-Goldbau to Luzern.

There is one connection that leaves Orvieto about 12:30 pm that goes to Florence, then Milian, then Chiasso, then Arth-Goldbau then to Luzern. This particular connection arrives at approx. 10:20 pm. There are some screen shots from the preview that show a town square after sunset. So this connection could work with a HoO in Luzern upon arrival. The route info task of cleaning the hotel room in the AM. It would be interesting if teams had to clean their own rooms or production

You spelled Swiss wrong.

Google shows a possible route via Orte and Milan, getting there at 8:44am. They can do tasks in Chiasso in daylight, and then proceed to Lucerne and do a night leg.,+Italy/Chiasso,+Switzerland/@44.7748883,10.7072576,6z/am=t/data=!3m1!4b1!4m18!4m17!1m5!1m1!1s0x132ecd06ba76106b:0x52122993d30fa840!2m2!1d12.1107446!2d42.7185068!1m5!1m1!1s0x478682cad3d73e45:0x798f6d252cd82e6!2m2!1d9.0270226!2d45.8349334!2m3!6e4!7e2!8j1385925300!3e3

Can anyone figure out the trains from Rome to Chiasso?

We see the lead teams getting their tickets at 10.10am and just making the train.
Brendon/Rachel's ticket agent tells them they arrive at Chiasso at 1.55pm, but when they actually arrive the clocks show 3.25pm.
The cowboys get on a train at 11.20am, which fits with Train ES 9526 to Milan.

I can't get historical train times (maybe someone could?) but here's the closest I have:
Brendon/Rachel, Leo/Jamal, Dave/Connor, Caroline/Jennifer                  
   Train ES 9520 to Milan, 1020-1340
   Train EC 158 to Chiasso, 1410-1449
   Train ES 9526 to Milan, 1120-1440
   Train EC 20 to Chiasso, 1510-1549
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!
