Re: Zentralbahn take over the MIB (KWO)

George Raymond
 

Among the tourists who ride the Zentralbahn between Interlaken and Luzern, I imagine that very few stop in Meiringen for the side trip to Innertkirchen. Maybe this merger will make marketing the line easier.

Zentralbahn take over the MIB (KWO)

stephenhorobin
 

After talks between the two companies it has been agreed that Zentralbahn will take over the running of the railway from the 1st January 2021. The KWO which owns the railway were wanting to off load the railway due to rising cost and regulatory requirements.

A short notice trip to take advantage of the free ticket offered by the Gornergratbahn to those whose birthday fell during the lockdown period.

Sunday 13 September
A last minute change of plans due to needing to be in work on Tuesday meant I stayed the night in Domodossola instead of Milano.

11197 19:48 Domodossola-Brig

Monday 14 September
Up early for the 05:58 to Brig, formed of 535s 118+124+110 which was fully loaded with commuters. At Brig 93 was viewed on the 06:48 to Fiesch with 2012 on the 06:52 to Zermatt so took 460073/093 on the 06:48 Romanshorn as far as Brig. There 94 was waiting on the 07:08 to Andermatt whilst I took 2012 to Zermatt. Passed 91, 51 and a unit heading towards Visp and 108 on a freight.

Arrived Zermatt 4 late at 08:18 for a quick dash to the GGB station where I easily acquired my free ticket in time for the 08:24 to Gornergrat with 3052+3082. The train was reasonably loaded and, after an hour at the top, the return at 09:55, with 3081+3051, was practically empty. The two up-bound trains passed on the way down were wedged and standing. Back in Zermatt, there was a huge queue for the train that ran out into the street. Additional trains were also been shown to run, but people were arriving faster than they could deal with them. The weather was glorious but I wouldn't have expected a Monday to be an overly busy day, it must have been even worse before Covid. Best advice is to go early.

Unfortunately another unit, 2021, at 11:13 back to Visp, passing only units until 91 on 12:08 Visp-Zermatt. Then 460074/109 to Bern for 460053 to Basel and home.

Derailment in Bern

Guerbetaler
 

This morning, about 07:40, the RE Bern - Luzern was derailed when leaving Bern station. Two tracks were blocked until about two o'clock and many trains had to be cancelled. Looking at the third picture of this article:

<https://www.bernerzeitung.ch/zug-entgleist-im-bahnhof-bern-chaos-im-pendlerverkehr-138758683213>

I can't think of another reason than a defect at the switch.
