Are they working specific diagrams? Or is it just random how they are deployed?Both, in a way ...
A VAE diagram has five days plus one day maintenance (which can be skipped, if not six consists are available), so you can predict, where they are running, if you know the diagram.
In other words: Within six days a consist will run each train. However, there may be exceptions on weekends and a consists may always be exchanged for repair works.
In Rapperswil you can see all five consists within about two hours, e.g.
0857/0859 SG-LU (will be back 1159)
0859/0903 LU-SG (will be back 1057)
0957/0959 SG-LU (will be back 1259)
0959/1003 LU-SG (will be back 1157)
1059/1103 LU-SG (will be back 1359)
The sixth consist sits in Herisau (may be in the workshop).
