Re: New locos for Coop Railcare

Since I believe that the reference to the named canton exists only in form of the stylized license plate on the lok faces, I think that we can safely assume that the Genevois and the Suisse Romande in general will not be offended.

SSIF?

Due to single line working because of formation and track renewal Bern- Basel trains will run on this route 30.06-13.08 and all local trains will be replaced by buses. Nonstop Zurich-Basel and vv trains will be diverted via Frick.

I know this group is Swiss oriented but I just found this photo on Flickr. What a beautiful place! I will have to visit this museum next time I'm in Europe.

A post on Bahnforum stating 476 456 was about to be delivered referred to it as "Genf". A separate source seen tonight says "Genève" which I agree is more likely


Re: New locos for Coop Railcare

Perhaps this is a slightly delicate question, but why would Coop Railcare name one of their locomotives using the German name for a French speaking city?.

Deliveries are now complete:


476 456 works number 22295 "Genf"


474 457 works number 22296 "Aargau"


Re: BLS RBDe 566 I

Martin Baumann
 

As reported by BAHNFORUM the CJ NPZ set RBDe 141 and Bt 941 has been taken out of service as it has reached its limit of running without an overhaul which CJ regard as too expensive. Until further notice either 566 221 or 222 will be working all trains on the Bonfol branch.

The timetables for the September Bernina event are now online. Riviera Belle Epoque runs from Montreux to Chaulin on the Saturdays and from Vevey on the Sundays. There would seem to be a photographic parade at 11:00 on the Sunday mornings. The diagram for steam BFD 3 can be clearly seen in the timetables, hopefully the other loco rosters will be known nearer the time.

The 474 pairs I mentioned in my previous post in Oct 2017 were well north of Arth Goldau/Rotkreuz. Clearly destination or origin Basel

502 405 was on the diagram yesterday. This was probably its first day in passenger service.

All last summer (as I’ve not been out to CH for railway purposes this year):

Saw solo Re 474s working as far as Basel SBB RB on trains via the GBT (seen at Mohlin, Immensee and south of Arth-Goldau). Also saw a couple of Re 474s paired with an MRCE ES64F4, one on a train and one pair light engine. I assumed balancing moves.

Saw three trains with Re 474s all as pairs north of Thun. I don’t know if they went over the mountain or through the LBT.

The introduction of the ES64F4 (MRCE) and Vectron (ELL/LokRoll) might have changed the operation zones of the 484 and perhaps also the 474. That was what interested me.

Re: SBB Cargo locos

Likewise. Not frequenting Ticino very often I had seldom seen any Re474, so it felt 'unusual', when Last October I saw several pairs of Re474 on the northern section of the Gotthard corridor (ie Wohlen - Brugg VL - Basel)

Based on observations last summer:

I presume that the 2 Panto ELL Vectrons are used in DE/AT only.
Are the 4 Panto ELL Vectrons coming into CH regularly?
I saw plenty of Vectron MSs in CH.

Are the Crossrail 186 all D/A/CH/I
I think so, but RailColor is worth checking.

https://www.railcolor.net/index.php?nav=1405127&lang=1

A number of 482 were leased to other operators in a deal with RailPool. At the time of the deal, SBBC in exchange leased at least one BR 186. What is the current status of those 482 subleases?
Summer 2016 there were still Re 482s leased to other operators in Germany, but RailColor suggests that they are now generally leased directly rather than via Railpool.

Are the 484 and 474 still coming north of Bellinzona or is their primary area of operation still in Ticino and Italy?
I haven’t seen any Re 484s north of Bellinzona recently, but Re 474s were quite frequent last summer. Since the GBT opened, they can now work solo from Basel SBB RB to Italy.
