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.
Last day of narrow gauge operation to Broc will be 05.04.2021
