Martin Baumann
 

Thurbo acquired GTW 2/6 railcars (94 85 7) 526 680 to 526 689 in 1998 and 1999 along with driving trailers Bt (50 85 29-35) 221 to 224

The last of these vehicles were stopped on July 5th and all have been scrapped except 526 683 which has been preserved by Verein MThB-NPZ (https://mthb-npz.ch/wordpress/?page_id=4446)

I had heard that one set and one additional driving trailer (pilot coach) were to be preserved.

Bt 224 was supposed to be preserved with 683 but has now gone to Kaiseraugst for scrap. An unconfirmed report suggested Thurbo were asking for too much money for the two vehicles.
