The second railway company of the country, the BLS is target of a takeover by SBB, fully owned by the confederation. SBB wants to buy stock from the canton of Berne, who holds a majority in BLS. Government of the canton of Valais fear a setting behind of the L�tschberg-route, SBB preferring the Gotthard-route. Apart from this, BLS has enogh locomotives to be a true competitor in freight transit. What do you think about SBB plans?
