Nobody asked why SBB stopped numbering at 33 996 and continued at 34 900. There was a reason for this. Regio and S-Bahn trains no longer had smoker compartments at this time. But RE, IR and IC had kept them. As it was planned to use some of these driving trailers in REs, 6 of them were allowed for smokers. So the 82-34 driving trailers were assigned to REs.
