Were the toilets removed at the same time as the coaches were repainted and the BLS Lötschbergbahn logo was added in place of the BLS script?

Usually a coach is repainted when modernized. All modernized coaches came out in blue/cream with the blue ending at a lower position than before (1976/77 delivery). The logos were changed independently from the colour applied.

The original inscription B L S (and likewise G B S, B N, S E Z), seen here on a repainted coach in Bönigen - behind the fence


Starting in 1986 all coaches got the [ BLS] Lötschbergahn logo with variants for GBS, BN and SEZ, disappearing after the 1996 merger


2001 on the repainted NINA in silver, the new "bls" logo arrived, with the open b. This logo hasn't been applied to blue/cream vehicles


Finally in 2006 after the merger with RM their symbol was taken over and the b was now closed. This logo was also applied to the remaining blue/cream coaches.
