These units will be withdrawn at the timtable change. Only 221-555-921 is still servicable it has been in service this week. The CJ unit 222-922 has been in use recently as their NPZ was being overhauled

BLS Historic have now decided to preserve RBDe 221 and ABt 921. This however will not be immediate. The set was released from an R2 overhaul at Oberburg 31.03.2016 and is now on loan to CJ for Porrentruy-Bonfol. CJ set 222-922 is now being overhauled at Oberburg. When it is released 221-921 will remain on loan to CJ until further notice as a reserve set.

As reported by BAHNFORUM the CJ NPZ set RBDe 141 and Bt 941 has been taken out of service as it has reached its limit of running without an overhaul which CJ regard as too expensive. Until further notice either 566 221 or 222 will be working all trains on the Bonfol branch.
