Re: Coach Numbering Font

Alan McMillan
 

Hi Markus

I didn't think I knew enough about this to say, but I went to a font download site to get the Calibri font only to discover that it dates from 2005! Clearly not what was used on coaches during the SBB + CFF era. If SBBH have used it on their vehicles, I'm shocked too!

The DIN 1451 Mittelschrift DB Regular font is the correct one although I did have to tweak the figure 1 and 7 to get it absolutely right according to period close-up photos I have of number panels.

For older markings...
according to SBB Historic, the Leichtstahlwagen have the following markings:
Symbol Height 45mm
Font Calibri
Ginstergelb RAL 1032
(or 3M Scotchcal Nr. 100-604)
Three messages further down, somebody who usually knows what he says, said that he was shocked by this information. And he also said that the current inscriptions on SBBH Leichtstahlwagen were wrong!

193 256 was briefly in passenger service on March 4th. When 11143 failed between Jetstetten and Rafz on train 1009 193 256, which was running light to Singen, hauled the train to Hüntwangen-Wil where the passengers were taken off, and then took the empty train to Zürich HB.

Coach Numbering Font

Alan McMillan
 

Does anyone know the name of the font used for numbering SBB coaching stock in the days of the SBB + CFF logo? I've thought previously it was DIN 1451 Engschrift and although that is close, it's not quite right.

From 5 April 2021 this curve is used by the new RE80 service linking Locarno with Chiasso every 30 minutes, extended hourly to Milano Centrale.

Re 6/6 overhauls

BAHNFORUM reports that the overhaul programme will be terminated after the four locos currently in works are released, apparently in this order

11667

176 is the lastest loco to be withdrawn.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.

Has just been announced on their Facebook page that this is now cancelled.

A provisional trip is planned for 14305 on 28 August, no details yet. There should also be the planned outing on 4 December.

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421 372 went to Kaiseraugst for scrap yesterday (along with previously withdrawn 11351 and 421 392)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

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) *

Is there something special about the pantograph with the extremities
painted yellow?
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.
