These three locos are parked together in Landquart station area this evening. I haven’t come across any mention previously - does anyone have the background ?

If the numbers are 103, 104 and 105, then these are Frutiger-owned Tm for use in the Furka Tunnel.
NVR numbers 90 85 829 0103-3, 90 85 829 0104-1, 90 85 829 0105-8

How many locomotives are employed on Furka Base tunnel modernisation?
I know 2 Sersa locomotives (Gmeinder 5553/1977 and Gmeinder 5586/1980), at
least one from Pizzarotti (LC 350 S, other details unknown) and those three
from Frutiger.

Thnx and regards

at once or over the whole modernisation period? :-)

I know 2 Sersa locomotives (Gmeinder 5553/1977 and Gmeinder 5586/1980),
90 85 829 0142-1 (ex MOB Tm 5)
90 85 829 0143-9 (ex MOB Tm 6)

at least one from Pizzarotti (LC 350 S, other details unknown)
two locomotives with three numbers each, a fourth may be added soon
LC350S1 = 217401 = 1806417-1 = 90 85 829 7401-4
LC350S2 = 217402 = 1806417-2 = 90 85 829 7402-2

and those three from Frutiger
90 85 829 0103-3
90 85 829 0104-1
90 85 829 0105-8

Both are owned by Gleisbau Müller. 101 is a ballast cleaner and 102 a rail mounted excavator, both are Metre Gauge.

SER for May 2021 reports that MGB have cancelled the contract for the tunnel refurbishment as the consortium including Frutiger tried to raise their price by 50 % from that agreed in November 2019. MGB have now requested new tenders for the work and the three locos at Landquart may be surplus to requirments depending on who wins the new contract.
