RhB Lokdienste


Keith Newman
 

The RhB daily lokdienste is very useful, providing details of what each lok is doing on the day; however, some of the diagrams have no fill and some are blocked in red. What is the difference please? Also, some of the train numbers have F or D in front of them - does this indicate which is the front (F) and which is the rear lok or unit (D)?

Thanks,
Keith

There is a "Zeichenerklärung" on the RhB homepage. It says

D vor Zugnummer = Doppeltraktion führende Lok
F vor Zugnummer = Doppeltraktion ferngesteuerte Lok
S vor Zugnummer = geschleppte Lok
V vor Zugnummer = Vorspannlok (Lok einzeln bedient, keine Fernsteuerung der Zuglok)

thus:

D = leading in MU
F = trailing in MU (remote controlled)
S = in tow (not powered)
V = leading but without MU

Red means it's something different to the booked diagram.

The descriptions of signage in the Lokdienst are in a file that I uploaded earlier in the year, as it wasn’t added to the RhB area.
