Re: RhB luxury trains

Maybe the criteria that Toma was looking for are more along the lines of

1) trains operating primarily for tourists rather than local traffic
1b) or if local traffic is also covered, separate coaches provided for tourists
2) tourist coaches have enhanced comfort or facilities (this can include panoramic windows, dining facilities, announcement of items of touristic interest)
3) the type of tourists the train is being marketed for are interested in discovering and viewing the landscape, thus for example ski shuttles which may also attract many tourists are discarded from this category
4) such trains are not typically integrated in the "Taktfahrplan" (as far as that existed at the time in question) but operate additionally to it (exceptions may apply)
