The Bulle - Broc line of TPF will be regauged to standard gauge and
reelctrified a.c. instead of d.c. This allows direct passenger trains from
Bern to the Cailler chocolate factory (obviously the second "must" for
far-east visitors after the Jungfrau!) and an easier access for freight cars
to the same factory. Sugar deliveries had already gone to road transport but
might come back thanks to standard gauge rails.

The common section of the Broc and Montbovon line leaving Bulle will be with
four rails and the catenary can be switched between a.c. and d.c. power
supply.
Last day of narrow gauge operation to Broc will be 05.04.2021

I just realised that a fault in my database had all the numbers for B 20-35 only one too high.

The corrected list is below. Since the original post 20-35 226 has been sent to Kaiseraugst

20-35 102 156 163 203 223 232 265 267 299 300 302 305 313 316 332 344

Re: OT: Geltendorf - Lindau electrification

Martin Baumann
 

Also from the Junction where Zürich trains now branch off towards Reutin to Lindau Hbf is not yet electrified. This will be done for the December timetable change when Lindau to Friedrichshafen goes live.

There are two tracks coming into Hergatz from the southwest. The northern track splits into 2, becoming tracks 2 and 3 in the station, with track 3 continuing as a single track in direction of Memmingen to the northeast. The other two tracks continue in the direction of Kempten. I had interpreted the tracks in an inverted order with track 1 being the one to the north. I apologize and I thank you for clearing that up.

This is wrong - the tracks are numbered in the following way:

Track 1 (next to the former station building) without catenary and based on regular traffic: Kempten outbound only
Track 2 (in the mid) with catenary: suitable for Kempten inbound/outbound and Memmingen inbound/outbound
Track 3 (also with catenary): suitable for Memmingen inbound/outbound.

Two electric trans from/to Memmingen can cross on tracks 2 & 3

It is a question of the Kempten route and it was the other way round.

The line from Lindau to Memmingen is electrified. The line continuing to Kempten is still without wire. Looking at the track diagram, it was logic only to electrify tracks 2 and 3. There is no possibility to leave Hergatz track 1 in direction of Memmingen. Thus, track 1 can only be used by diesel trains in direction of Kempten (right hand running in Germany). It is still a question, why the train from Zürich via Memmingen to München was directed to Hergatz track 1.

I was wrong. DB reports that all upgrades on the Lindau-Geltendorf route were complete by December 20, 2020.
There still remains the infrastructure work on the ÖBB section between St. Margrethen and the German border, after which the trains will be able to run at speed on those sections as well. https://www.oebb.at/en/fahrplan/baustelleninformation (Vorarlberg). That would should occur between 04/21 and 06/21.

There are plans to improve the link between St Margrethen and Lindau so that the trains can move at a faster speed.
There are also some plans to upgrade a few sections along the Bavarian "Allgau" section to allow for faster operation too.

Regarding Chris' comment, my understanding is that the train was routed onto Track 2 at Hergatz station, when only track 1 was equipped with catenary.
It was not a question of the Kempten route.

Re: OT: Geltendorf - Lindau electrification

Max Wyss
 

The key is that switching the signalling system (between Switzerland and Austria) is possible while the train is in motion. This is supposed to be possible with an ETCS software update becoming certified this year.

Because the trains are very tightly tied into the Takt in Germany AND Switzerland, it is not possible to just deal with the 10 or so minutes for a static switch, and delay the trains just by that amount of time. This is the reason why between the arrival in St. Gallen, and the departure from St. Margrethen, the trains at the moment spend half an hour extra (10 minutes for system switch, plus 20 or so just waiting.

Max.

travelling time to 3:30. Any info what the next steps in modernization will
be to cut additional 30 minutes?

Thank you and regards

OT: Srbija Voz, Stadler KISS speculations

Toma Bacic
 

Serbian passenger company Srbija Voz announced on Feb 11 a tender for three 200 km/h double deck EMUs for the Beograd - Novi Sad services. Although the company signed a Mou with CRRC on Jan 6 for the procuring the new trains, the technical details requested in tender are identical as on Stadler KISS 4-car units. Number of (well informed) media in Serbia said that the new trainsets would be manufactured by Stadler...

The problem is that the requested delivery time is very short - the first should be delivered to Serbia no later than October 31 this year, and the remaining two by the end of the year.

Now, my question is - are all ex-Westbahn 200 km/h KISSes in DB, or some are still stored, and theoretically could be delivered to Serbia? And also, are there any possibility for Stadler to deliver the new trainsets in such a short period of time?

regards
toma
