Securitas train in Bern

George Raymond
 

Past posts here have described the Securitas “jail rail” train, a
self-propelled railcar and a windowless driving carriage marked Securitas
for the transport of prisoners. Today about 11:15, I saw it pass westbound
under the Bühlstrasse bridge just west of Bern station. The short train
moved on a left-hand turnout from track 1 onto the southernmost track and
was still waiting there 10 minutes later when I had to continue to an
appointment. I can imagine that for security’s sake, each run is planned
individually and confidentially.

11141 was officially withdrawn 01.10.2007 while still in the Swiss Express colours. It was reinstated 10.08.2009 and left Bellinzona works after an R2 overhaul and repaint in red 18.09.2009

Correct, but kept the "towing hook" <+> on the front.

Re 4/4 II 11101

Martin Baumann
 

Following a request for information made on Drehscheibe.de it has been suggested that this loco has been scrapped at Dübendorf. However this is so far unconfirmed


Re: Re 4/4 II with UIC-18 door control

Duncan Cotterill
 

Thanks for the info Martin.

Has 11141 been repainted into Swiss Express livery recently? It was red when I saw it a year ago but with painted numbers.

Re 4/4 II with UIC-18 door control

Martin Baumann
 

SBB-P have been equipping some of their Re 4/4 II with a cable for coach door control using the UIC-18 system. Those locos done are likely to be retained in the event of a fleet reduction. (This does not include the LION locos all of which will be modified)


Those locos done so far are:
11115
11116
11118
11121
11122
11132
11135
11136
11139
11141
11148
11149
11152
11154
11156 to 11159
11161
11164
11172 (II)
11181
11191 to 11196
11198
All of the above are red except 11141 Swiss Express and 11161 Green. Some of the SBB-P locos not done so far are potentially withdrawal candidates not having had an overhaul in many years:
longest out of works is 11304 (R1 16.04.2008) followed by 11200 (16.06.2009) and 11197 (02.09.2010)

11254 is now back in service

As the texts mentioned below are only available in German, I might give some additional infos here

road, which is busy at the best of times and will be especially so
where there is single file traffic control (SALT).
The signals are manually operated from G�schenen to avoid queues of more than 200 m.

The railway will be closed on the dates already cited but the road
will be single file traffic control will be continuous, potentially
slowing down the replacement buses when the railway is closed.
The buses are faster than the railway, especially in Andermatt�G�schenen direction and furthermore I expect the operators in G�schenen to give the buses some priority. In April and October traffic can easily be handled by a bus.

Note also that there will be bicycle carrying service.
Uphill only, cost CHF 5, and is mandatory (road closed for bicycles), each year 2014�2019 from April through November, all this except six weekends during the Summer when the works will be reduced to allow two lane traffic. Downhill bicycles reach "normal" speeds and are allowed.

Andermatt to G�schenen will be closed 28.04 to 23.05 and 06.10 to

temporary road will be put on part of the railway line!
It should be added that the road work isn't the only reason for the closure but MGI will also build the combined passenger/ski underpass to reach the new station building and cableway station in Andermatt.

just as a reminder
MGB = train operating company
MGI = infrastructure manager
MGM = management company

Andermatt to Göschenen will be closed 28.04 to 23.05 and 06.10 to 31.10 this year. This is because of work on the parallel road and a temporary road will be put on part of the railway line!



This has not yet made it to the SBB journey planner but a German article can be found here:
