This is the last bit of a Luzern - Hergiswil improvement plan that had been taken into the list of urgent projects for suburban traffic by the national parliament in 2006. Most of the project was terminated by 2012, when the Allmend tunnel opened. But the bit in Hergiswil was delayed by lengthy discussions about possible alternatives, which finally proved too expensive but then again led to a better project in terms of noise protection and protection against flood. Now finally, after 13 years, it's there.

Re: Withdrawal of ex BT NPZ

It will be sad to see the last of the classic compositions go. When I lived in Wollerau when I was young, there would be a train with a BDe 4/4, either SOB or Bodensee Toggenburg, almost every hour, as trains rotated between the long runs to Arth Goldau and Luzern, the locals to Biberbrugg and Einsiedeln and the occasional SBB run on the same route.
The BT RBDe 4/4 were introduced a decade after I returned to Canada. I did ride on one in 1985, when I was back in Switzerland on vacation. It was not until 1998 that I got to ride on one of the SOB's NPZ own trainsets. I remember reading about an announced model from SMF in 1985. I did not know until much later that a model had later been released by Ferro-Suisse. In any case, the model was DC and I am running AC. I did pick up two of the SOB NPZ sets from Liliput.
I guess it would have been nice if DSF could have got it's hands on both of the remaining units and kept one for spares to support the other and the ex-TRN unit.

I have fond memories of the green BT trainset framed by the roof of the St. Gallen Bahnhof with it's large Maestrani sign.
At least we will still have the chocolate... I won't be in Switzerland to take this final ride.

Those that have been delivered are at the usual site. However, only ASM1, ASM2, BOB, MOB and MVR are already there. The rest will eventually arrive.

Obviously SBB didn't want to do the coupling in Martigny on the way back. So the RE runs behind the normal RA train and produces a later arrival in Vevey, Lausanne and Genève than with the daily connection with IR90. As this IR90 is occupying track 1, the RE from Le Châble starts later so as not to arrive in Martigny until track 1 is free.

The train Genève-Aéroport - Le Châble is IR 1745 that runs coupled with IR 1711 to Martigny. Return is RE 18496, called RE 18460 from Vevey, where it runs daily. It's not correct everywhere but 1711, 1745, 18460 and 18496 are always attributed to "CFF".

Where did you find that "KUB"? I can't see it.

Also some things are not decoded.

Withdrawal of ex BT NPZ

Martin Baumann
 
Edited

Bodensee-Toggenburg put 6 NPZ units into service in 1982, RBDe 4/4 71 to 76. These became SOB 566 071 to 076. All except 72, currently stored serviceable, and 75 have already been withdrawn and the other two will go at the timetable change.

DSF are running a farewell special on December 15th:
