New Schöma locomotives for Furka base tunnel renovation


Philip G Graham
 

The Frutiger AG company is taking delivery in late 2020/early 2021 of three Schöma Model Type CFL250DCLR M diesel hydraulic locomotives for work on construction duties connected with renovation of the Furka base tunnel. The tunnel opened in 1982 is to be floor-lowered and relaid with new continuous concrete road bed in addition to new drainage and electrical upgrade. The Schöma locomotives are similar to recent deliveries of Tm or Tmf 2/2 to other Swiss regional metre gauge railways and contractors such as Furrer+Frey AG, Bern; Transports Publics Fribourgeois; Regionalverkehr Bern-Solothurn.
This author would like get a check on the serial numbers and delivery dates of these latest three, please.

According to the rangierdiesel.de website one of the three has Schöma serial 7142 of 2020 and was delivered to Frutiger at Thun 9 February 2021. It has EVN: 90 85 8 290 103-3 CH-FRST. No indication of when it will be moved to the worksite at the Furka tunnel renovation.

Has anyone photographed any of these units yet, please?

Official writing of meter gauge EVN is
90 85 829 0103-3

829 stands for private building companies

Two more, 104 and 105 will follow.
