WG: articule Bulle-Broc en voie normale


Guerbetaler
 

The Bulle - Broc line of TPF will be regauged to standard gauge and reelctrified a.c. instead of d.c. This allows direct passenger trains from Bern to the Cailler chocolate factory (obviously the second "must" for far-east visitors after the Jungfrau!) and an easier access for freight cars to the same factory. Sugar deliveries had already gone to road transport but might come back thanks to standard gauge rails.

The common section of the Broc and Montbovon line leaving Bulle will be with four rails and the catenary can be switched between a.c. and d.c. power supply.
