Re: Widmer Rail buys 421s

Well the Betweroute and the Havenlijn are equipped with ETCS, so if that is
the only part of the Netherlands served you could eliminate one system.

I think it is the other way round: It is thanks to ETCS that locomotives
for so many countries at the same time are available at all. For 2018 there
are still three lines where you still need Signum, for all other lines ETCS
will do. The trhee remaining lines will be converted untill the end of this
year. In other words: A locomotive allowed to operate in Switzerland isn't
empowered for a national Swiss signalling system. It just has to come with

Markus, G├╝rbetal
But isn't Switzerland still an exception in this? Doesn't a locomotive
good for NL/BE/DE/CH/IT still have to be equipped with NL/BE/DE/IT national
systems in addition to ETCS?
