All three Travys Em 3/3 went for scrap this morning 18816 18830 18840, 840 was only ever used for parts.

Also sent for scrap was Ee 2/2 2 (SIG/MFO 1970) Ee 2/2 1 is stored in Orbe awaiting disposal

Travys recently acquired 18830 as their third operational Em 3/3

are the ex-SBB Em3/3 locos available for little more then scrap
value?
It might be helpful to know that the line is going to be re-electrified in 15 kV 16.7 Hz ac within a few years. For this, a new entry into Chavornay is needed. At the moment, negotiations are going on between Travys and SBB on how to accomplish the task. Once finished, freight trains will go through to the Travys infrastructure without the need of any action by Travys. At that time the Em 3/3 might be surplus and the Ee 2/2 anyway. Perhaps Em 3/3 3 would survive.

It is not yet clear how passenger traffic will continue. It would be possible, in theory, that FLIRTs from Lausanne run through to Orbe. However, path availability is considered insufficient to do this. Thus, some sort of shuttle might continue, but now in ac.

OC/Travys do have a 1985 Henschel 3 axle DE loco (32724) which was rebuilt and uprated in 2012 98 85 5837 803-6.

Travys now own three Em 3/3 but only 18816 is currently in use and can usually be found in Les Granges between 1000 and 1400 Monday to Friday


18840 is currently in the depot in Orbe being worked on for a return to service as time permits.


18832 is for spare parts only despite being allocated new number 98 85 5830 832-2 CH-TVYS
