SSIF often bought old trainsets from FART and FLP.

Thanks, Markus - very helpful (if not what I'd like to have heard....!)

Look at the current stock list and you will know...

The "toblerones" are owned by the Italians and it is not yet known if SSIF will also buy new trainset. They are only 14 years old...

Does anybody have a sense as to which fleet these will be replacing?
In a first line it's very clear
The four three-car units replace ABe 4/6 52-54 in regional trains in the
Swiss part
The four four-car units replace ABe 4/8 45-48 in international trains.

But this doesn't answer the question if SSIF will buy these 7 trains as
a complement to their technically identical ABe 4/6 61-64, to finally
replace their ABe 8/8 21-24 (21-22 ex-FART) and ABe 6/6 33-35 (ex-FLP)

If they were to oust those rather nasty SSIF "Panorama" units (ones
with the Toblerone-style profile!), then I for one would not
weep....
These are the most recent vehicles of SSIF. thus you can't expect them to be replaced soon. Unfortunately.
