Keith asked:
I thought the GTW 2/6 on "Seelinie" was the Stadler diesel unit. I remember one being in St. Gallen for the celebrations in 1997. Is there an electric version running to Herisau? Do the RBDe 4/4's from MThB run on this service too - or do you know where they run? (I assume this is a relatively recent change in the service since I do not recall seing MThB units in Herisau when I was there 1996-7.)
 
For use on the formerly SBB-operated "Seelinie" MThB bought in 1998/99 10 electric GTW 2/6 RABe 2/6 526 680 - 689 together with 4 driving trailers 29-35 221 - 224.
 
The 3 diesel GTW 2/6 Bm 2/6 596 571 - 573 of 1996/97 are used on the non-electrified german "Seehäsle" line Radolfzell - Stockach which was reopened to passenger traffic with the help of regional subsidies.
 
The 4 RBDe 4/4 566 631 - 634 of 1994 (identical with SBB 560) run, together with the 6 ABDe 536 611 - 616 of 1965/66, the "Seehas" Weinfelden - Konstanz - Singen - Engen. Between Konstanz and Engen this is a DB-service, MThB running on a contractual basis.
 
GTW 2/6 exist in a nearly unbelievable variety (delivered or under construction):
 
Country, number built/to be built, railway company, numbers if known, (year of delivery), gauge, other remarks
Diesel units (all German units are standard gauge):
Germany   3 MThB 596 571-573 (1996/97) Radolfzell - Stockach
Germany 14 UBB Usedomer Bäderbahn
Germany 30 DB  646 001-030, for Brandenburg
Germany 12 DB  646 ..., for Magdeburg
Germany   3 HLB VT  101-103  (1998, without 1st class, with toilets)
Germany 12 HLB VT  104-115 (1999, without 1st class nor toilets)
Germany  3 HLB 508 116-118 (1999, with 1st class and toilets)
Germany 12 HLB VT  119-130 (1999...) Hessische Landesbahn
Greece 17 OSE 1000mm narrow gauge
Greece 12 OSE 1435mm
USA 20 NJT Trenton - Camden 1435mm
 
Electric units:
Switzerland 10 MThB 526 680-689 (1998/99) 1435mm 15kV 16.7Hz a.c.
Austria 8 StH/LILO 22.151-158 (2000) 1435mm 800V d.c. (and 15kV 16.7Hz a.c. for 22.151)
Switzerland 7 ASM (ex BTI) Be 2/6 501-507 (1997) 1000mm 1200V d.c., 1 additional traction unit 5080
Switzerland 3 CEV Be 2/6 7001-7004 (1997/98) 1000mm 850V d.c., also in use on MOB
Cesko 14 ZSR 425 96.. (2000...) 1000mm 1500V d.c., Tatra railway
Switzerland 4 CJ ... 1000mm 1500V d.c., Chemin de fer du Jura
Switzerland 2 YSC ... 1000mm 15kV 16.7Hz a.c., Yverdon - Ste-Croix
 
So there are for each standard and narrow gauge: diesel, a.c. and d.c. trains.
