On MGB and ZB it's technically impossible.
Why? Because of the rack?

Thank you and regards
Toma

I'm not aware of any BLS Pendelzug with two locomotives. But I have seen trains with motor coaches top and tail. But that was quite long ago.

I know this type of consist (locomotive top and tail) from SBB, SOB and RhB. On MGB and ZB it's technically impossible. On MOB it would be possible but was never seen.

BLS Goldenpass

I was going through my photos and others that I have downloaded or seen on the web and trying to figure out whether the Goldenpass between Interlaken and Zweisimmen was ever operated top and tail, with a BLS Re 4/4 at either end in place of the regular Steuerwagen?

Re: RhB Be 4/4 EMU sets 511 to 516

Is one of these sets going to be preserved or are they going the way
most "modern" RhB rolling stock goes and are all scrapped?

Shown as follows in the current allocations :

511/512/513 all “Abgestellt RhB”
514 BR at Samedan as noted below
515 “Abgestellt LQ”

Presumably 516 doesn’t appear in the list any longer because it is being dismantled already.

When I was over there in mid-Oct two were dumped outside Reichenau-Tamins (I think) and a couple more in the sidings south of Chur. As I don’t really follow units I didn’t note which ones, but presumably they were 511/12/13/15.

I only paid attention to them because during a family winter holiday in Feb of this year, I remembered that the StNPs still had control of most Klo-Dav-Fil shuttles.

It would be nice to see somebody recover 11350 and give it a third life as SOB 41 again.

Re 4/4 II first series

Martin Baumann
 

There is an unconfirmed report that SBB Historic have acquired 11108, I have asked them to confirm if this is true and await a reply.

SBB-P are offering locos of the first series for sale, SFR 450,000 each, the advert states locos will need an overhaul before use.

(I suspect that the engine in the best physical condition bodywise will be the machine kept for the heritage collection. It could be 706 is that one and it will receive components from other machines to keep it running).


Re: RhB 706

If it is just the traction motors that are a problem could they re-use the ones off 701?

 

Is there any need for it to still be available for traffic?

The Re 4/4 II and EWI/II sets used between Brig and Domodossola were removed from these services and moved to Basel where they will be kept in reserve for the time being. The trains are now worked by an NPZ Domino or an EWIV 460 pushpull

As the Vauban was not part of the SBB-FS Joint venture, it did not
come under the Cisalpino banner.
Cisalpino traffic with loco-hauled trains started in July 2004 from Zürich (EA 4/2004) and was extended in December 2004 to trains Basel - Bern - Milano and Genève - Milano. In December 2005 the remaining trains (via Luzern and some more from Zürich) became Cisalpino trains.

By December 2004 the Vauban was restricted to Brig and there was no reason to include Italian coaches after that date.

Hi Markus and Mike, thank you for all the great information to answer Alan's question. I have learned a lot and have copied the links for future reference. Along with your comments. Very happy to have read all that you have posted on this topic. This will allow me to also put together good consists of the equipment I have purchased without a clue as to when it was built and run. As some of my layout is Euro themed.

Thanks for the postings.


Take care,
Chuck Higdon
