I am interested in all Swiss railway models including HAG. I do not have a preference regarding the name.
Same here , no probs with any name change .

HAG on its own would discourage modellers who glimpse the group's name but model anything but HAG. I would say that a large majority of modellers of Swiss railways (especially outside Switzerland) have very few HAG items but many items from the other manufacturers, as HAG models are comparitively expensive and quite 'specialised'.

Assuming BEMO is excluded from the group, a Swiss railway modelling group would cover HO, O, Om, G, N, Nm, N:150 (Kato RhB Series) which would cover at a guess at least 30 manufacturers' products in addition to HAG.

I would also be interested in joining, but I think that naming the group simply HAG would narrow interest down too much. Something like SwissRailModel(l)ing or SwissModelTrains seems a valid alternative.

Count me in too!!! As I have HAG engines, I don't mind if HAG is included in the name!
I'd prefer a meaningful name rather than something clever but obscure.

How about “SwissRailModellers“. I would recommend the British spelling “modellers” over the US “modelers” to be consistent with our use of wagon, railway, transport, sleeper, shunting and driver instead of car, railroad, transportation, tie, switching and engineer (person who drives the train in the US).

Perhaps the name could be "HAG, etc." or "HAG and others". Almost all my Swiss models are from ROCO, and the roco-modeltrains Yahoo group is closing according to a note I got from its moderator. If the new group is open to all Swiss rail modeling, I would definitely join. There is a SwissRailModeling Yahoo group. If that group is going away, perhaps that would be a good name.

Markus,

I would join this group.  “HAG” is a wonderful name, however, I am comfortable with any name.

To update on gbgen’s comment which was circulated in July.

With the lack of work further south there has been a notable increase in Basel appearances from those Re4/4 that previously served the Lake Geneva peak hour trains.

In Sept alone, the following were seen in Basel, the majority on service trains, occasionally only stabled (but assumed to have simply been between passenger duties). The date is the first sighting/report in September; multiple visits were made by some but these are ignored for readability. Twelve of the eighteen are recorded, -and that with still about 50% of the days in home Office.

Typically, of only 6 not noted in the month, both my last two are included. Can anyone please provide a current location or operations of 11172 and 11194 ?
