It was nice to see that 193 532 "Rhein" received the original "Nightpiercer" livery which had been applied to 193 492 for a few months.
The main difference is the livery is darker and there are stars in the sky. The red line also does not extend the full length of the side.

Edited

With the border to Germany closed it looked as if DB 401 Class ICE units would no longer be seen past Basel before their replacement by 412s next month. However restrictions were lifted earlier than suggested and today the following have worked:

401 078/578 ICE 373 12:18 Berlin-Interlaken Ost
401 081/581 ICE 372 06:00 Interlaken Ost-Berlin
401 085/585 ICE 278 10:00 Interlaken Ost-Berlin

I added a rough blue line to the lok body. What do you think?

Re: New livery for BLS 465

That livery was painted on one locomotive (Re 460 016) as a prototype. The livery was not well received and it was never officially adopted. The SBB decided instead to initially remove the "2000" from the lok faces and has since decided that a more glossy red with the SBB logo added to the lok faces would be the new appearance of these loks.

Prototype "Wave" livery:

Someone ought to refresh our memory and post a picture of the "new" standard Re460 design scheme with the wave. I never saw a picture of a real locomotive, just a HAG model. How long did they actually last before they were repainted back to the original?

I should check my facts! Tramways.at has already recorded that the cars are 61 81 75-71 450-9 to 454-1. Not sure why the article mentioned DB, then as these cars were never with DB.

I don't like these light greens too much.
I agree. IMO worse than the 1970s 'universal' orange that fell out of favour because people didn't like it.

I am guessing that these coaches, originally built starting in 1975 will replace some of the older ex-SBB RIC coaches that RAlpin acquired from Hupac when it was founded.
Additionally, with the loss of one of the more modern UIC-Z type couchette coaches, these will be a welcome addition to the fleet.
http://www.bahnonline.ch/bo/69820/fuenf-ehemaligen-oebb-schlafwagen-wlabmz-61-fuer-ralpin.htm
Does anybody know whether the coaches being modified for RAlpin are precisely the former WLAm 450-454 of the SBB or include others from the ÖBB fleet?
The text mentions that they are ex-DB which will probably mean the cars: 61 81 75-71 403-8, 405-3, 410-3, 413-7 & 414-5.

Hope this helps,

The project had started in Novmeber 2018! The five coaches had been delivered 1974-75 as 71 85 75-70 450-454 to SBB.
