2020 version

Instructions are only in Slovak but google translate helped.

This year you need to install both

Inštalačný súbor aplikácie PCVnutro.exe

and

Súbor s dátami pre spoje osobnej vlakovej dopravy k CP 2019/2020 pre Slovensko Vlak20Sk.exe

both of which are towards the middle of the page

Only rebuilt coaches at SBBH. There were no more coaches in original condition to be set aside.

Thanks Martin.

The Basel commuters were already discernible in the 'Zuggattungslist' (Z list) discussed a few days ago, The Domo EWII also fairly close to what is shown in the Z list, but the forum list possibly makes the situation slightly less vague than the listing on the 'Z' list with its mention of EWIV

It was the door system that made them go to the scrapyard before the NPZ coaches. Furthermore it is no longer allowed to use EW I/II NPZ other than in push-pull consists with Re 420 and BDt. Only with Vst III coupled, the doors can be locked (to avoid passengers to alight on the wrong side).

All the ones I've seen of late are the NPZ liveried ones, with 2+2 seating in 1st class.

Yes Chris,

over classic route with 11666 both ways. Next Re6/6 tour in July 2020, Luino and Bellinzona to Schaffhausen.

Re: New alternative point to point Swiss timetable search engine

Paul Burkhalter
 

Thank you Gordon, and I agree it is very nicely laid out.

New alternative point to point Swiss timetable search engine

gordonwis
 

Fahrplanfelder, the go to site for the Swiss timetable PDFs has a new point to point timetable search engine starting with the new timetable on 15/12

Basic point to point option already available, 'personal timetable' and 'customised departure board' obviously planned but currently showing as 'not yet available'

https://fahrplanauskunft-oev.transportdatamanagement.ch/qv/#/EinfacheFahrplanauskunft/Suche?lang=de

It offers a very nice compact/concise view of your chosen connection - a very nice alternative to the SBB/Hafas type online timetable search - especially IMHO for experienced railway travellers and for those occasions when you don't want to buy a ticket so don't want an online timetable search cluttered up with fare purchase options

Several nice features, including:
a) tight compact vertical listing (but each separate train instantly expandable to see calling points by clicking on a plus sign) for your chosen itinerary
b) one or more individual results can be selected for printing
c) small at a glance symbols (a loco represents trains) to show how many different trains (or other mode) you will travel on, eg a sample Zurich Airport to Vitznau I did showed three consecutive connections, one with 1 train 2 bus, one with 2 train 2 bus and one with 3 train 1 bus

Are there still EWII in service or is it just EWI KLB (NPZ)?
If there are still EWII are they in IR (Papagei) or Comfort livery?

Re: New SZU units

Andrew Moglestue
 

I wonder if they are planning to shut down the line for an extended period to make the necessary changes to the electrification, or whether this will be done in a stepwise manner while the line continues to operate, maybe with the occasional weekend or late night blocakde.

One problem with a stepwise transition is that as soon as you have even a short section of AC, the old Siemens units can no longer be used. If the new Stadler units cannot run on DC, you basically end up with a situation in which neither type can be used.

Thus the decison to go with dual system units suggests to me that a stepwise rather than a big-bang transition is being envisioned.

Re: New SZU units

Chris Wood
 

But the Stadler Facebook page says this about the order:

"Die Sihltal Zürich Uetliberg Bahn (SZU) hat Stadler gestern den Zuschlag über die Lieferung von fünf weiteren Zweispannungs-Triebzügen erteilt"

So these new Be 570 units will in fact be dual-voltage, just like the existing Be 510 units, after all. I wonder why they are being given a different type classification; I guess there must some other differences.

Presumably they have chosen to go dual-voltage because of the likelihood that the re-electrification project, even though accepted as part of the 2021 to 2024 funding plan, will not be finished in time for a train due to be in passenger service in 2022.

Hello Mike,

The pan was up throughout the climb and it was powering out of Arth Goldau and both loops. It then worked Biberbrugg to Einsiedeln and Biberbrugg down the hill to Arth on the way back. So both the Re6/6 and the 421 powered uphill to make sure acceleration was at its best and avoid delaying the intensive service train schedule.

Hope that helps

Was the Re 421 pushing up the grade from Goldau to Rothenburg or did it go all the way to Biberbrugg and then head the train into Einsiedeln?

Yes, all graphic timetables that have ever been uploaded are still available. Go to the last entry "ZVJ". There is a list with links.
