Latest version, now from the "Journal de Ste-Croix":

"Suite au choc, de l�huile du compresseur de la locomotive s�est d�vers� dans le ballast."

Following the impact, some oil from the compressor was spilled over the ballast.

This clearly refers to the motor coach (la motrice) which was said to have been back on the rails by 15:40 on Friday. No mention of how much oil it was, but hardly 1000 litres ...

No, it is normal to put the driving trailer to the downhill side, see as an example the Visp - Zermatt consists.

However, with only one driving trailer it doesn't matter. On the Yverdon - Ste-Croix each drinig trailer is individually positioned:

51 (and former 52) uphill
53 downhill
54 (for old Be 4/4) uphill
55 downhill

Because we know it was 53, we know it was downhill


Re: Gotthard tunnel celebration

Martin Baumann
 

I should point out that regular passenger service through the Gotthard base tunnel does not start until 11.12.2016. There will be passenger carrying trains during the celebrations mentioned and possibly other times before December 2016


Gotthard tunnel celebration

John Lovda
 

I was thinking about going to Switzerland for the opening of the new tunnel. However.....I just received a monthly SBB e-mail news letter and it stated they are expecting 50,000 to 100,000 people for the events on June 5 and 6!!! They will also be taking reservation shortly for rides through the tunnel. I assume all of these people will be gathering at the depots at Erstfeld and the Italian side. I wonder about hotels. It sounds like I wouldn't be able to ride thru for a week after the opening. What a paradox.


Test running commences on new Zürich bridges

Martin Baumann
 

After a recent load test using 6 Re 6/6 test running over the Kohlendreieckbrücke and the Letzigrabenbrücke started today. SBB expect to run around 150 test trains between now and when it is used for scheduled service from December 13th. Note that these two bridges are for westbound trains only. An eastbound train will as now run along most of the Südeinfahrt line from Altstetten, then run on to a new ramp which will take it on the the lines coming from Wipkingen before descending to platforms 31-34


Re: Runaway derailment on Yverdon Ste Croix

No, the article refers to the "overturned locomotive"
And the only thing that was overturned was the driving trailer. I assume that the article was written by a non-specialist journalist who probably shouldn't be expected to know the difference between a locomotive, a motor car or a driving trailer, but certainly ought to be able to tell the difference between 'overturned' and 'slightly derailed'.

Having said that, I guess the transformer is the most likely answer.

What is also not clear from the article is which vehicle was leading. From where the vehicles ended up it looks like it was the driving trailer, but wouldn't it be more normal on a steeply graded line to marshal the lighter driving trailer on the uphill side?.

Thanks for explanation. Yes I have read about it but didn't memorize the title.

It may not be widely known around the world but had filled Swiss press space some time ago that said ruler was schooled in Berne.

Sorry, I'm lost. Can anybody shed a light on what this film should be,
is or was? Is there any reason why everybody should know what the film
The Interview is?



The Interview is a 2014 American political satire comedy film directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. It is their second directorial work, following This Is the End (2013). The screenplay is by Dan Sterling, based upon a story he co-authored with Rogen and Goldberg. The film stars Rogen and James Franco as journalists who set up an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park), and are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him.

o.k., that's something else...

Original drawings and first photos show window 1, 4, 7 and 10 with louvres.

Later it seems to be changed to window 1, 2, 8 and 10 on the toilet side and 1, 3, 9, 10 on the other side.

With the rebuild into inland-coaches it was changed again into
4, 9 fort the toilet side and 5, 10 for the other side.

11601 has now been stopped, reason unknown, and is in Bellinzona works. It is by no means certain that either prototype will run again

The railcar has now been recovered with the help of an SBB Hilfswagen (breakdown vehicle ) brought to the accident site on two Rollböcke (trucks for transporting standard gauge vehicles on the metre gauge). It was taken away by Tm 23

Thanks for the information.

By window configuration, I was speaking not of the number of windows, but rather the positioning of the louvres to allow circulation in event of failure of the A/C as well as emergency features. AFAIR all coaches were modified at some point during the 1980s.
These changes are reflected in the RailTop/Heris models 13020 and 13021.

Sorry, I didn't yet find time to search for this. I know about the livery but can't remember that there was anything with the interior.

B 529 was painted light grey/green in 1983 and got two different grey liveries in 1988.

At some point during the life of the Bpm 1979s, the window
configuration and seating arrangements were modified.
Window configuration hasn't ever been changed. They have 10 windows plus on one side two smaller toilet windows just beside the doors.
