Rolling motorway in Basel SBB


George Raymond
 

This morning July 23 at 10:10, I saw a rolling motorway train with its
lorries facing east on track 4 of Basel SBB station. At the west end of the
train was a BLS Cargo locomotive bearing the numbers 016 on its front and
9185 4485 016-0 on its side.



Freight trains on the Basel SBB platform tracks are rare. Perhaps this
relates to the downing of catenary by falling trees between Freiburg im
Breisgau and Basel last night. My ICE from Cologne ended in Freiburg and the
DB put four of us into a taxi for the rest of the trip to Basel.
