RhB motive power

The Davos services are now fully deer and the historic train to Filisur has a red locomotive, as one Crocodile is still being repaired. Disentis - Scuol is still fully in the hands of Ge 4/4 II, the Capricorns should take over between Summer 2022 and December 2023. The St. Moritz-Vereina-RE are still a mixture of what is available but mostly Ge 4/4 II. More Capricorns will arrive by December of this year and they will run combined with a Davos train between Klosters and Landquart.

Four push-pull-sets with a bicycle coach are still in service, three are scheduled for Scuol - Pontresina and one for St. Moritz - Landquart. Today there were only two available and the Engadin was served by
613-push-pull-1758
3104 (STZ)
515-2418-2413-1716
705 on the freight
603 on local freight (Samedan)
222-353 on an Extra to Scuol and they came back with three freight cars

The Vereina car-shuttles are now with BDt 1721-23 and 1731.

would it ever be feasible / practicable for the Davos - Filisur
historic train to use 222 or 353 (or both....!)?
The problem is that 353 and 222 are not fitted with ZSI (the narrow gauge ATP system) and are thus not allowed on regular services. They can only be used in a restricted number of Extras. Otherwise it would be necessary to fit them with ZSI.

645 was there with an empty shuttle, the two active locomotives can't be seen on the Klosters side, as they don't leave the tunnel.

Using the Filisur webcam together with my sightings I can add some assignments on the Albula:

642, 646 and 648 with Alvras
647 with Alvra seems to have had MU problems 10:30
https://www.schmalspurbahn.ch/filisur/webcam/m210929102915220
and was later replaced by 641 (19:03 up)
3503 and 3504 with EW II and Bt
633, 643, 702, 703 on freights
615, 618 (up) and one more (down) pulling GEX
several ZTZ (Allegra) with BEX

And to repeat the Filisur webcam rule:
Track 1 is down, track 2 is up, track 3 is Davos.
IRs are back at the same place after 6 hours, Filisur is in the middle,
thus 9:00 up, 12:00 down, 15:00 up, 18:00 down should be the same consist, if not exchanged anywhere.
