Presumably these are for the following event:

I thought it odd the cars were not covered for their journey given their retail cost.

Now I suspect that get fairly battered by the ice so remdial work is in order anyway.

Did your bins job look like this:

if so it would be the 64773 Solothurn-Olton bin working. Another Ae 6/6 regular.

Thanks for the posting and the images taken.

Cheers,

It looked 'exactly' like that!!

Places still available on Feb 15/16 if you have EUR 2,900 to spare!

It shows that Aston Martin know the the safest way of getting their cars to St. Moritz is by the RhB!

My electrical equipment was fine, I suffered though, the wind, when it get sup goes straight through you.
Poschiavo is fine, Disentis as well, not Trin though, no waiting room open. Sagliains has a waiting room but nothing else. Samedan is good, but very cold. St Moritz the same.

Maybe the bankers at RBS are having their bonuses delivered to St Moritz.

Neil,

Comforting to know your camera is within a minute of the SBB Graphic Chart timing! (LOL) That Ae 6/6 postal working was seen by Gordon W (message 16750) last December. So, one to watch for folks.

Almost forgot, there was another Ae 6/6 went rattling north just as we had got off our train at 1200 and were walking down to the platform end, it went through the platforms to the left of the main over roof (looking toward Basel). It was another green one and was hauling a few wagons with what looked like waste containers aboard....


A weekend in Basel

yatton123
 

On Saturday noted that old hump line had been lifted and the new fans were in use on the Saturday afternoon shunt.It doesn't seem to have speeded things up much - one train took 45 minutes to shunt.
I went down to Auhafen & Birsfelden Hafen on Sunday.On the way down I walked over Muttenz yard bridge and the Ascendos lok 1266 024.9 came in on train 40319. There were 5 tank trains in Auhafen yard and the usual ones in the Avia & Taa Tanklagers.I walked up to Birsfelden Hafen and there were wagons in the Petroplus Tanklager together with lok 847 856.2
'Barli' with its appropiate bear logo.I then walked back along the Rhein and there were three loks at the back of Delica factory.
There was a Dutch registered tank barge at the Rhytank terminal and on arriving back at Auhafen a Swiss registered tank barge arrived and tied up at BP/Taa number 1 terminal.A pleasant walk back through the woods to Muttenz.
Went to Limmattal on Monday afternoon - over 500 wagons shunted in 2 hours.Plenty of Ae6s working.

Upcoming visit

I will be in Filisur for a week, including the Steam Circular railtour on 12th February. If anyone else from the group is on the same railtour it would be an opportunity to meet fellow members.

Kind regards

Its a really lovely photo. And one of the lovely things about those locos is they don't in fact "rattle" :-)

OK then, anybody; why these vehicles which look like all sports cars?

A footballer's WAGs convention, perhaps?

Alp Grum restaurant comes to mind straight away, I seem to recall a restaurant within sight of the platforms at Landquart.

Graubunden travel advice question

Gordon Wiseman <gordonwis@...>
 

Being a long standing traveller in Switzerland, I feel somewhat strange
asking this question, but a forthcoming short break to CH will be slightly
different to the norm, hence the question.

I'm going with my wife to RhB land but - it not being summer obviouisly I
cannot dash around taking photos and leave her reading a good book in warm
sunshine on a rural Swiss red bench.

In the past we have spent 'lineside' time at various locations outside
the summer months, for example Bernina Davolezza in the snow, but that was
Easter and thus the air temperature was comparitively warmer and the sun
stronger, even with snow on the ground.

The advice I am seeking therefore is for any suggested locations where my
wife could pass the time relatively undisturbed in sheltered or warm
locations whilst I am photographing RhB activities. Any suggestions however
unlikely are welcome - even heated platform waiting rooms. Obviously
the more scenic the outlook or view from any said location the better, and

Many thanks in advance

Neil,

Was that Ae 6/6 @ Olten recorded circa 12:08? If so, it was working the 50722 10:16 Frauenfeld - Harkingen 12:16 postal containers. If not, what time did you bag it?
