Re: Jungfraubahn, ticket options

I must admit I prefer the Schilthorn to Jungfraujoch.  Must nicer views and the trip is all in the open air.  And if you reasonably fit you can always walk one or both ways from Grütschalp to Mürren (or part way to Winteregg) to enjoy the views.

I’m tempted to say that the cheapest way to the Jungfrau is by helicopter. I too would be very interested to hear of any tricks for saving on the train fare, which per km must be the highest in the world.

 

Another consideration is the effects of altitude on some people. My father (86) will never return to the Jungfrau for this reason.

 

But most people do fine, and if the weather holds out, the view from the top is incomparable.

The cheapest way to the Jungfraujoch would be to get a Coop voucher that was given, when you bought for more than 100 Fr. ...

If your parents don't plan any other rail travel in Switzerland, then my answer is: breath deep and pay.

For the average car driver, there is no reduction at all. Before the V-Bahn opened, it was possible to get cheaper tickets for the first train. But I can't find them any more.

Swiss Half Fare Card is CHF 120.00. The half fare return ticket Interlaken Ost - Jungfraujoch is CHF 117.90 ...

Hello all!
I think this question has already been asked (and answered), but I can't find it at all... My parents (70+ years) are planing to go to Jungfrau this August, they will travel by car to Interlaken. What is the cheapest option to go to Jungfraujoch?

Any advice is appreciated! ;)

Thank you!

Not to forget the LION livery, which I think makes the locomotive look younger than it actually is.

Personally, the Re 4/4II in TEE colours was my favorite one to run into. Later, the Swiss Express colours stood out in my mind.
The standard livery (initially) green. and later red were nice. I don't know which one was my favourite.
I do recall that they did not let the loks get quite as dirty in the 1970s as they have recently.

I think that I will go for green for locomotives with the round headlights and red for the ones with the rectangular halogen headlights.

It's still the nicest livery for Re4/4s in my view.

11335 has been given a full repaint in green livery (has been red since 20.01.1999)

So far no information as to why but it might be due to an imminent sale. As of now the loco is till SBB Cargo in the vehicle register.

This loco has been doing trial runs Glisergrund to Disentis all this week.

Does anyone have pictures of the entire train please?

Writing wasn't always uniform. I find 5.4.02 besides 05.04.02. But I couldn't find a four-digit year.

Gordon,

Thank you very much for that. The information that I have been trying to figure out is beyond anything that I have seen on any website.
I ordered four SBB EC coaches (LS Models). The coaches all have revision dates between 2007 and 2009. I was planning on adding a panorama Apm coach once they are released, bringing the consist to 5 coaches total.

In the interim, I was trying to figure out what other coaches could be used with this consist.
I had the idea that I could use either an Am Eurofima, which were used in some consists, but none of the models in my collection had an overlapping revision date.
Last night, I found that one of my Roco models (44669) has a 2009 revision, which opens up that possibility.

Markus made the contribution that I could add a Roco WRm (44963) type. I have to check the revision date on that model.

None of my individual LSM SBB Eurofimas have revision dates past the 1990s. The same applies to all my LSM SBB RIC coaches in the green/grey livery.
I did not consider any of my fleet in the new ICN livery, as that was coming into service in 2009, so would still have been rare.

I am going to expand my search to any compatible coach with a revision date from 2005 on.

While looking into this I discovered one interesting thing. My ACME SBB Am Eurofima coach has a revision date of XX.XX.2002.
As far as I remember, the dates were always expressed in two digit groups, so it should have read XX.XX.02 instead. Maybe Markus can confirm this?

I am not usually a rivet counter to this level, but seeing as I already had a fleet of Roco SBB EC coaches and I specifically ordered the LSM models that had close revision dates, I became more curious about this.

Mike C

In the meantime, any suggestions are appreciated.
Reisezuge.ch covers the 2009 and 2010 era so you should be able to check consists on that web site

being that the revision dates on my models are 2007 through 2009.
The Swiss rule used to be four years for coaches between revisions. I think this rule lasted until 1998.

Going through my photos of 2008 I found a detail photo of WRm 108 with REV3 Ol 14.12.01 (I took the photo because of the V-Lok inscription)

So, you would not find coaches with 2007 mixed with ones from 2008 and early/mid 2009?
Would that also be the case for domestic (inland) ICs?

For an intenationally approved coach, prefix 51 or 61 it used to be a maximum of one year. I am uncertain if this is still the case.

While waiting for an Apm Panorama to make my consist a 5 coach EC, which other coaches would be best suited?
When used in EC service they were mostly among themselves. The Zürich - München consist was
Am - Apm - WRm EW IV - Bpm - Bpm - Bpm ...
EC Chur - Germany had 3 Apm, a WRm EW IV and many Bpm.
At that time CIS-liveried coaches were around.
The Am were in their last years of SBB service.

But Apm and Bpm were also used in inland services. At the Gotthard you could see them in a wild mix with EW IV, even EW II, and Bpm ex Bm Z2 and B ex Bpm Z1 plus an Apm Pano in the middle.

St. Gallen - Chur were especially nice consists, e.g.
D EW II - Apm - Bpm - B ex Bpm Z1 - Bpm ex Bm Z2 with an Re 4/4"
