#MOB gauge changing trains #mob

In another years long field of patience I can confirm that still more patience is needed. The starting date of 13 June 2021 for the MOB gauge changing trains Montreux - Interlaken has been postponed. CORONA delayed bogie delivery and reduced patronage so that an opening is not expected before Dec 2022.

The planned timetable has been published under 120 on
<http://www.fahrplanentwurf.ch>
and was already online on sbb.ch but has now vanished. The trains would have departed from Montreux at ..35 and would have train numbers 4064, 4068 etc.

The 2021 graphic timetable contains trains at ..35 with train numbers
2708F, 2710F, 2712F etc. It seems that MOB thinks of offering fast trains at peak times. Nothing else has been published so far.

I can confirm that it is in the state of being converted and will remain in this state for quite some time. You have to be very, very, very patient.

Furthermore I can also confirm, that MGB 106 is still in the state of being converted and that it will remain in this state still for some time.

Finally I can also confirm, that MGB 105 entered Bellinzuona workshop as well, where it will be repaired and then converted as well. It can be expected, that it will stay in the state of being converted for quite some time. So, pleas be patient.

RhB 653 ex-MOB 8003

I’ve not read anything about this for many months : can anyone confirm the status of this conversion ?
e.g. Is there any planned date for it to be in traffic, or does the deluge of Capricorns mean it’s no longer needed (this week 3121 appears on rosters for the first time) ?

Die Strecke findet ihre Fortsetzung Richtung Süden über die 2. Rheinbrücke in Basel, deren Bau im Oktober 2012 abgeschlossen wurde."

Length is only 3.1 km, of which about 2/3 lay within Basel Bad Bf., between Rhein and Wiese river. Another km is between Wiese bridge and the frontier.

As well as this report, which also includes a report on the later collision in Osogna (1986):

The Swiss fire brigade journal published the photo attached on its title page of the August 1980 issue. 11629 rolled against 11630 at the head of an oil train in Muttenz. Obviously 11629 hadn't been duly parked and secured.

If the chalk marking was 11605 it would be a different matter but '605' means nothing necessarily. So who's going to post the comment in Railpictures...?


Re: Photo (Railpictures.net)

There is another photo taken the same day which clearly shows 11629 in the shops, so that would suggest that it has to be 11630 in stripped down state in the photo from the original post:
https://www.railpictures.net/photo/752691/

11629 was the locomotive that 11630 collided with as it was pulling an oil train in Basel harbour.

This photo shows a pair of Re 6/6 cab enclosures, of which at least one probably ended up in the rebuilt 11630:

File uploaded showing daily Ge 6/6ii passenger diagrams in folder RhB. No guarantees they actually worked. (Apologies if this is not the optimal folder or of no/limited interest - if this info is worthwhile I’m happy to be guided where it best belongs : Nov sheet under compilation).

Shows a clear pattern of which trains are a good bet (4109/1113), and which not (4367).

I can't imagine anything else than this being 11630. According to EA 10/1980 this locomotive was brought to Bellinzona for repair. It arrived there on 8 Sept 1980. Danuser/Streiff say building a new carbody by SLM had been found too expensive and that SBB repaired the locomotive. All this fits perfectly with the picture in question. 605 and 005 seem to be markings for the workforce and mislead the writer of the caption to think it had a relation to the locomotive number 11605, which was pure speculation. Danuser/Streiff list all heavy repairs but nothing about 11605.

Jean-Marc Frybourg posted a photo that supposedly shows Re 6/6 11605 with only half of it's superstructure, taken at Bellinzona shops in Summer 1981.
https://www.railpictures.net/photo/752729/

I could only find three locomotives involved in serious accidents around that time, of which only the first, 11630 in 1980, fits that period. The others were 11611 in 1986 and 11638 in 1990. I thought that with the date of 1981, this could be 11630, but there are clearly markings that say 605 and 005 on the chassis seen in the photo.

Does anybody have any information as to why a 6 year old locomotive needed such repairs or could this be the 11630?

Re: re SBB Cargo locos

Martin Baumann
 

Yes, Cargo, certainly in recent years, have been unwiling to pay for R3 overhauls for any locos except Re 6/6

The only loco of the group to get an R3 was 11375 (as it still was at the time) released 22.05.2002


Re: re SBB Cargo locos

csipromo
 

I did not know that. Thanks for the information
Was this a result of the division of the fleet between SBB and SBB Cargo?
