Re: Chaes Express Question

I am specifically speaking about the original route between Basel SBB and Brig via Bern, Spiez and the Lötschberg.
I was trying to figure out if that train was a domestic train between Basel and Brig or whether it may have been the domestic segment of an international run.
Would this train perhaps have included a number of coaches which might continue on through the Simplon into Italy?
I know that there were some trains which travelled along the Lötschberg, which were combined with segments from the Rhone valley (Geneva) in Brig for the rest of the run south.

The diner or the fondue?
Swiss Fondue always looks like cheese, Mister.

My father and I once had a fondue in one of the service's diners, which was painted to look like a giant piece of cheese.

There were three such coaches 88-33 700-702 (1989, 91, 93) with 2 in daily use. They were attached to very different consists. And at that time Lötschberg trains were often a "wild" mix of coaches. Withdrawn in 2001. It should be noted that the Bpm 51 (ex Bm) were widely used as additional coaches in national connections. If you see them next to EW4, it's not an international train.

Is there any specific year you are interested in? I can dig out the timetables.

Chaes Express Question

csipromo
 

I have a question about the Basel to Brig Chäs Express. Did it run as a inland train or did it compose the inland portion of an international train?
I was trying to figure out whether it would be solely made up of BLS rolling stock plus the SBB WR or was it the SBB WR plus a few coaches which were attached to either through coaches (from Germany, etc) or coaches from Basel SBB which were to continue past Brig through the Simplon to points in Italy?

I have not found any consistent photos which would suggest a definite consist for this train. Some show EWI, some show RIC SBB coaches and some show a mix of SBB and BLS coaches. It is further complicated in that not all photos are of the Chäs Express on that particular route.

Thanks for any information.

Thank you very much for this photo. It is the first that I have seen of that coach during this timeframe.

I thought on the first day of operation they screwed up and sent the
first Munich bound train at Hergatz toward the Kempten route and broke
its pantograph (like sometimes on my model layout but without the "god's
hand" to rescue)

I will try to dig it up.

The electrification and improvements mean that trains can travel faster and this has not only lessened the time, but has allowed for more frequent connections.

Check back later and I will post what I can find.

OT: Geltendorf - Lindau electrification

Toma Bacic
 

Hello all!
Some questions regarding the Geltendorf - Lindau electrification project!
- what was the best travelling time between Zürich and München before the electrification? Which route was used by Zürich and München services - through Memmingen or through Kempten?

Thank you and kind regards
Toma

This must be a British addition based on imperial measurements :-)

In Switzerland, 68 + 68 = 136

605 was put in service on 12.03.1953, 610 on 03.07.1953
The photo was taken on 12.02.2021

2021 - 1953 = 68

If you prefer counting the days: 24809 + 24696 = 49505

Also notable that both 605 and 610 are 12 years older than all but two of the Ge6/6II ! The pairing of the two GE4/4 I represents a combined age of 134 years!


Re: RhB Ge 6/6 II (701 Class)

Notable in respect of the comment and photo below about pairing of 610/605, is that this combination was booked to work 4367 20:02 Kloster-Samedan last Tues, Feb 9th. They have been diagrammed together daily as replacement power for a Ge 6/6 duty on Fri 5th, Mon-Fri 8th-12th.

702/703/707 are the only ones still actively diagrammed, with 705/706 out of service and 704 showing as on repair, now since Jan 18th, ominously.
