I was on that tour today with two friends. Was anybody else from this group on the train?

Ah ... sorry !
Dogs are not allowed on GEx because food is served to all seats, and I have ours with me. To blag would be to persuade the staff to let me on against the rules ... unlikely, but in extremes you have to try

.... on safety / heating grounds, as it’s snowing quite steadily in Davos area today.

414 and set replaced by 618 and normal set today.

11173, still red, produced as booked today


A couple of SBBC queries

A Swiss contact went to Frauenfeld earlier this week and saw two trains of imported organic sugarbeet.One train was hauled by EDG 446 loks and the other by Beacon Rail 185 596.
One train was of SK - CWAG open wagons.
He also saw the building waste train at Yverdon - so that's the second query answered.

11108 authority to run expired today and there are no plans for an overhaul to allow it to return to traffic. (An overhaul would be mandatory for the loco to run again having had 2 TK)

Also 421 380 385 388 390 are currently stored in RBL

Wish I’d stayed in Chur instead and tried to blag a dog on the GEx with 605.....


Re: SBB Cargo locos

11645 has been reprieved but 11646 is now stopped. 646 has in fact not worked since the end of July

11631 is expected to be the next loco for overhaul and Cargo repaint


Re: RhB 605 still on the Glacier Express

25/09, Ge 4/4 i 605 is still working the Glacier Express, seen on the webcam at Filisur on 905, 10:20 ex St Moritz. The lok on the krok turn was obscured but it looked to have the oblong shape of a Ge 4/4 i. 603 had been on it Saturday until Tuesday, no information since then.

Also noticed that a seat reservation on the Glacier Express is now CHF33, it was only CHF when I last did the train, which I think was 2 years ago now.

➢ And also a fair bit of snow today up in the mountains.

Dear Mike

I forgot to mention that, on leaving Basel Bad Rbf, there was a Beacon Rail TRAXX loco on the back of the service hauled by the EDG 446s, a couple of which are hired to LTE

cheers

Thank you for the replies.
The container train is probably the Wolfurt - Rotterdam (via Frenkendorf) service which was introduced earlier this year. In January DP Ports took a 44% share in SwissTerminals who run Frenkendorf  - info here.
