No it wasn't longer than six weeks, because the tunnel had been reopened after the first closure. But then they had to close it again.

11 kV of RhB is special in Chur. Modern 15 kV locomotives are not allowed to work under 11 kV unless they are allowed to do so. If I'm not mistaken, some Vectrons got such a modification.

Old Re 4/4" or Ee 3/3 simply work a bit slower, but they work.

Presumably it is one of the initial batch 11101 - 11106 which afaik all originally had the lower setting of the letters - by 1985 it couldn't be either of the Swiss Express conversions of course.

But I'm sure the article is fine apart from that.......!

It looks as if the loco on the right is 11101 which did have the lettering at the lower level


Re: Locomotive Appearance Query (Re 4/4II)

It is possible that one of the two is a prototype (11101-11106).

M Koblischka posted a photo taken from a train passing the Zurich Depot in 1985
http://www.railfaneurope.net/pix/ch/SBB_CFF_FFS/misc/depot/SBB_Depot_Zurich.jpg

As I looked at the photo, I noticed that the SBB CFF/SBB FFS markings were not at the same height on the two Re 4/4II in the middle of the photo. Both locomotives seem to be from the first series (11101-11155).

Even if it's railway gazette, it's wrong.

LBT wasn't closed for six weeks, only one spur of the double track section. They lost the word "partly" between being and closed.

That's your interpretation. The status of the locomotive is "out of service, registration suspended". Thus it still could be repaired and returned to service. However, I don't think that this will happen. But BLSC has to wait for decisions of insurances etc. before they can formally write off the locomotive.

Gordon's link is correct and works fine from my Thunderbird mail program. However, the link isn't displayed cprrectly when reading the message online. The problem is the closing bracket in the link. We can try to enclose the link with < > but I'm not sure if it works. We will see:
