The football coaches are 50 85 21-73 501 to 532. These are normally kept for
match special trains but I have seen them in service trains
All but eight of these have now been withdrawn, SBB intend to convert 35 EW IV second class coaches for football trains.

The first is 21-95 325 ex 21-95 160. It is so far unknown if they will be 301 to 335 or 325 to 359

Just wonder what conversion is necessary for the trian to be used for
football matches? Less seats and more handrails for standing places to
fit more football fans?

Not much needs to be done to the EW IV. They are replacing the life expired RIC coaches. More had to be done to the latter to prevent football hooligans throwing things out of the train or interfering with the emergency brake.

The RIC coaches are the last non museum coaches that do not have retention toilets so their eraly removal is desirable from that point of view.

What modifications are being made to the coaches for football train use? Did they install vandalism resistant seats and decor?
