176 is the lastest loco to be withdrawn. It had been out of service since December 2020

The pantograph blade looks very similar to the one on the Re 6/6 operated by RailAdventure.

The SBB Historic trains planned for April are also all cancelled. 8/9 May trains are still open, for now.

421 372 went to Kaiseraugst for scrap yesterday (along with previously withdrawn 11351 and 421 392)
On a more positive note, 421 371 still going strong with SBB-C has just passed through Pratteln, 31.03.21 on an empty car transport train.

421392 at Kaiseraugst looks almost pristine in its Münich advertising livery, apart from some graffiti

The fact that Railadventure locos might go 'anywhere' as compared to
a 'normal' SBB Re6/6
An Re 6/6 with 1450 mm pantograph has no other possibility than an
Re 6/6 with 1320 mm pantograph. Germany and Austria require 1950 mm.

1450 mm pantographs are helpful for motive power able to go to France or Italy. The French 50-Hz-network can be accessed with 1450 mm pantographs but 1600 mm is also possile (for dc lines 1600 mm is the minimum and 1950 mm are possible). In Italy 1450 mm is the standard.

I noticed the yellow ends on a photo of the Railadventure 11603. The fact that Railadventure locos might go 'anywhere' as compared to a 'normal' SBB Re6/6 might explain why 11603 has 'wider' pantographs.

I couldn't find photos in exactly the same anlge. But similar ones. In the attachment you see
- 11637 in Austria which means 1950 mm (c) Erich Naehrer
- 11605 with what I would think is 1320 mm (c) Heitersberg
- 11676 as posted by Mike with probably 1450 mm (c) *

Yes sir, as far as I can see, they are much yellower than those on other pantographs. :-)

Sorry, I don't know exactly what it is about, but this is what i know:

Swiss prescriptions allow two widths of pantographs: 1320 or 1450 mm. But the latter requires insulated ends to avoid arcing in tunnels. Mostly the insulated part is coloured. It's easy to guess that the yellow part is insulated. But then again, I think yellow is quite unusual for insulated parts. I can't remember having seen such a shining yellow extremity of a pantograph.

I miss passenger trains pulled by Re 6/6.

I would love to see more videos like this.

The 003Sokrates videos are nice, as are the HansP74, the FilmemacherKilowatt and the REOSRailway ones.
The Railway Emotions and Lorirocks777 are cool, but they are much more recent.

If anybody knows of any videos from the period 1985-1998, please let us know.

Both are owned by Gleisbau Müller. 101 is a ballast cleaner and 102 a rail mounted excavator, both are Metre Gauge.

How many locomotives are employed on Furka Base tunnel modernisation?
at once or over the whole modernisation period? :-)

I know 2 Sersa locomotives (Gmeinder 5553/1977 and Gmeinder 5586/1980),
90 85 829 0142-1 (ex MOB Tm 5)
90 85 829 0143-9 (ex MOB Tm 6)

at least one from Pizzarotti (LC 350 S, other details unknown)
two locomotives with three numbers each, a fourth may be added soon
LC350S1 = 217401 = 1806417-1 = 90 85 829 7401-4
LC350S2 = 217402 = 1806417-2 = 90 85 829 7402-2

and those three from Frutiger
90 85 829 0103-3
90 85 829 0104-1
90 85 829 0105-8
