Re: re more Basel Tram news

George Raymond
 

The damaged sections of 5034 are at Bombardier Vienna for repair. 5034 is expected to return to service in Autumn 2020. At least the front two sections of 5019 are write offs and will be replaced. 5019 is not expected to return to service until the end of 2020
In what accidents were these trams damaged?

Thanks,
George

Re: New Zurich trams finally ordered

4001 has started testing on the VBZ network. Driver training will start in April with a view to passenger service in the summer. Each new car will be used in service for 25 days on the 11 before moving to line 4.

It is hoped 9 or 10 cars will be in service by the end of the year when VBZ hope to have enough trams to reverse the service cuts made on 25.11

Not much again as today I was James Bond and went to the Schilthorn.

460028 IC959 06.58 Basel - Interlaken Ost
420501 RE4065 09.08 Interlaken Ost - Zweisimmen.
460044 IC1076 15.20 Brig - Basel
460110 IC724 15.32 Zürich - Genèva Aéroport

Also saw 4 465s on stock at the following locations.
465003 Spiez
465007 Thun
465008 Spiez
465010 Bern
So I am not sure if they actually worked any trains but they seemed to ready for the call if required.

Cheers Keith.

Re: SBB starts process to acquire 325 new EMU sets

AFAIK it is open to everyone. So I would expect bids from Hitachi and Talgo as well…

There should have been a loco at the rear of 11193's train as well. They can't use driving trailers in the Lausanne area now due to ETCS on the line towards Aigle


SBB TPC MGB 13/01/2020

13/01/2020
So having tried time and again to get haulage on BVB loks 31 & 32 which run on the TPC network from Villars Sur Ollon - Col De Bretaye, I tried again.
Caught 460087 on IC704 from Bern - Lausanne to connect in with 07.50 (IR1809) towards Aigle. This turned up with 11193 on banger stock.
Due to the Youth Olympic Games there were loads of people about but managed to get the front seat on the shires from Aigle to Villars. Duly arrived to Cow Bell city with thousands in Villars all seemingly supporting someone. God knows who. Massive queue to get on the train towards Col. Managed to get on the platform at first attempt though and flagged cart 82. Then had a chat with Bert who advised that 31 had a defect but 32 was just coming out of the shed to work an additional at 09.15. That has happened before though and then it promptly failed on me last year and went straight back onto the shed. As I was already on the platform and everyone else was behind the barrier I walked up to the front end and there was 32. So kept everything crossed that it didn’t fail and fortunately this time it duly departed at 09.15. It also worked back on 09.45. Others on the hill were all units 81, 83 & 92.
Then made way to MGB.
460049 IR1815 11.22 Aigle - Visp
MGB 52 R352 15.25 Täsch - Brig
460117 IC1080 17.20 Brig - Bern

Cheers Keith.

SBB thinks that EMU should be used during 25 years and then be replaced.
