BLS Ae8/8

John Whitby <john.p.whitby@...>

Hello All,
I read with interest the posting from Markus about BLS loco availability but does anyone know the current status of BLS Ae8/8 no.273. In mid January it was hard at work on AlpTransit trains with Ae8/8 no.275 but for most of the last week of January it was parked out of service at Kandersteg. I assume that it may have suffered some mechanical/electrical problem.
Any information will be gratefully received.
Best wishes,
