Re: RBe 540 Diagrams?

Great to hear that not much has changed since my last visit in May.

Thank you very much for the info!


Re: RBe 540 Diagrams?

Martin Baumann
 

Yes, with ocaissional but irregular appearances on S21 or S24.  Some of the 107xx Zurich-Chur trains turn up as an RBe 540 hauling a few coaches. I had 540 055 on 30th July on 10759, 0707 ex Zurich (10761 0807 ex Zurich was 11157 that day) This depends on loco availability. Watch out for a departure board that says ERSATZZUG, unless it is a train that has to travel on the new line Olten-Bern (NBS) or through the new Lotschberg tunnel that could well be a 540 set (or an Re 4/4 II pushpull) If a Zurich S-Bahn train is ERSATZZUG it could well be one as well. I noted a couple on the S3 in July/Agust.
While there are only three diagrams there are still 33 RBe 540 on the books giving considerable scope for additional or replacement workings

Hello all,



Does anyone what the current state of play is with the RBe 540s? Do they still work diagrams 2 to 4 ( http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/SwissRail/message/19405) on a half regular basis?



Thanks in advance!


CJ special trains 06.10.2013

CJ will have two preserved railcars plus Te 2/2 504 in service. Full timetable is in the files section as a pdf.

(504 had been reported as withdrawn due to the cost of returning it to traffic but his appears to be incorrect. 504 is 100 years old this year having been built for the opening of what was then the Tramelan-Breuleux-Noirmont railway which opened 16.12.1913)

Of course, Schaffhausen isn't in the ZVV area. BUT, it is in the Z-Pass area. However, Z-Pass isn't available as 9-o'clock pass, just as normal day pass (not a 24-h-pass as in the ZVV). Bit complicated, I know.

<http://zpass.ch/en/zpass/tageskarte.html>

For a short overview:
A-Welle-ZVV is Aargau + ZVV
Flextax-ZVV is Schaffhausen + ZVV
Ostwind-ZVV is St.Gallen/Thurgau/Appenzell + ZVV
Schwyz-Zug-ZVV says what it is

But you have to decide, which zones you want to buy. See here for the zones:

I was also in a train affected by the incident (Zürich to Basel ICE) but no rare mileage, we just went via the Bözberg route.

I seem to recall being able to get a ticket including the ZVV pass from Kilwangen Spreitenbach which is outside the area. In the unlikely event that you cannot buy the ZVV pass with the add on to the boundary included, I am sure that you could buy the pass and the return to the first station as separate transactions but you would need to return by the same route you came unless you pre planned a round trip and bought the singles to and from the boundary stations in advance.

I find the lIniennetzplan misleading. A safer bet is to use the Zone map:

Re: Zurich area 9 o'clock ticket

My few days in Switzerland is rapidly approaching. I've seen reference
to the Zurich area 9 o'clock ticket and it seems suitable for my
"coverage purposes". Am I correct in assuming it's available
for all areas after 0900? I am staying it at Winterthur and want to visit
both Zurich and Schaffhausen. I've already purchased a Ostwind
tageskarte plus for a day of intensive "coverage" in its coverage
area. Paul in Australia

------------------------------------


Unless they changed it, the 9-Uhr Pass is valid on the whole ZVV network
after 0900 on weekdays and all days on weekends, until end of operation
(that's the difference to the "All zones" day pass, which is valid for 24
hours).

Hope this can help.

Max.

At the moment, thanks to Yahoo's great work to annoy everybody with a new design ..., it isn't possible to edit messages sent to the group for moderation. So I will forward those parts of the messages, which are answers and continue to delete old messages. Even better if you do it yourself, then we can approve the message without the need of editing!

Rare Swiss mileage in Brugg

Due to an apparent suicide between Lausen and Liestal my Olten-Basel was rerouted and I just had the very rare experience of traversing Brugg on the freight bridge that passes at right angles over the passenger tracks toward Aarau.

Ta... From previous experience, it is likely to stop atGrüsch ( http://bit.ly/15kiHh5 ) before continuing up the valley allowing further photo opportunities at Jenaz ( http://bit.ly/15xA81L ) and Fideris ( http://bit.ly/184Qhup ) before a lengthy stop at Küblis ( http://bit.ly/1chtb6V ) with an opportunity to make one's way to a suitable vantage point for the departure ( http://bit.ly/15xAFRw ). Another lengthy stop at Klosters giving ample time to find a spoton the climb to Davos ( http://bit.ly/15xB8TB ).An even longer stopat Davos before a quick run through Wiesen ( http://bit.ly/12LCyJd ) to Filisur. Just enough time at Filisur to get to the vantage point above Landwasser viaduct forone more photo ( http://bit.ly/18ldQOz ). One thing to add, the assisting Ge6/6II has been photoshopped out of the shot at Davos Wolfgang. Alan.

Just thinking out aloud I reckon Kublis would be a good place for a blow up as this is where the real climbing begins also Klosters Platz for pathing reasons and for another rest before the final stretch up the Wolfgang Pass.

The swap of the Re 425 for a 186 has been realized already; that's the 425 that goes to Felsberg (RhB).
