Re: [TRAVYS] New Re 420 owner

Martin Baumann
 

Bahnforum reports the loco to be 420 506 (11142) It is also reported that MBC (the operators of BAM) have also purchased a BLS 420, number so far unknown

[TRAVYS] New Re 420 owner

It seems that TRAVYS has bought an Re 4/4 II from BLS recently. Nothing is known yet about the purpose of this action.

There isn't a big choice left for Railcare. Only the Re 4/4 II/III (or 420/421/430/436), the Re 6/6 (or 620) and the Re 425 can work to Felsberg and Domat/Ems (assuming that Ae 6/6 are no longer available).

It wouldn't be a real problem to adapt the software of a modern locomotive to work under 11 kV. But it IS a problem to get approval for the locomotive after the change is made...

BLS 425 west of Chur. Railcare Frauenfeld-Felsberg-Frauenfeld Container traffic

Don
 

On my trip to Graubunden earlier this month, I managed to view the BLS 425 hauled container train that runs M-Th between Harkingen and Felsberg (west of Chur) where Heineken (with the support of Swiss Federal and Canton partial funding) developed an enhanced loading facility in 2012. The 50633 11:32 ex-Frauenfeld runs via Rorschach, Buchs and Sargans and according to the Graphic Chart should be at Felsberg at 14:30. The days I saw the incoming train it was about 25 mins down on that timing. The loco runs round the wagons and draws the train into the loading area. The driver for the return working arrives at Felsberg from Chur on the Rhazuns bound unit about 17:13 and within 20 minutes the train was ready to leave. The booked return for Frauenfeld, 50634 is 18:35 ex-Felsberg but it leaves well early but may be held at Chur. The link will give you a view of the incoming working:

Sorry, typing too fast! That should read 610 420 (ex 11420)


Re: Ae 6/6 status

Martin Baumann
 

There is an unconfirmed report on BAHNFORUM that

620 420 11424 11465 11470

will not return to service and are to be returned to Däniken for storage tomorrow

Re: One less green Re 6/6

Martin Baumann
 

It is now confirmed that 11662 is in Bellinzona for R3 and repaint

11663 hauled by 11165 from Erstfeld to Bellinzona overnight 19/20 March. It has not yet been confirmed if this loco will get an R3 and repaint now also.

o.k., then this is the simple case, I forgot to mention: Empty the browser cache before downloading! (no Gremlins...)

However, I had heard from cases where browser cache emptying didn't help. I'm still interested in news on that.

Yes, the old one had "Période d'horaire 2012"
And I have just Googled fahrplanfelder, followed the required menus and opened G303 to check and as you will see from the link, it is still the old one to 2012:

How strange is that? What do you get when you follow the link I have quoted above?

Sounds good but when I checked this a.m. the link shows G303 still to
be the outdated one:
http://www.fahrplanfelder.ch/fileadmin/fap_pdf_graphic_tt/G303.pdf
I have heard of this phenomenon before. Even the person from SBB who uploaded it told me that he wasn't able to download the new version yet. But I had the new version available right from the beginning.

There must be a problem with mirroring the server or some proxy servers between you and the St�mpfli server. Perhaps some knowledgeable people can explain and tell us what to do against it.

Thanks Gordon

Not been on the group for long and not seen your article in Today's Railways but your response is much appreciated. At least there are still hauled trains so i'll report on what i find after the trip at the end of April.
