11601 and 11602

Martin Baumann

Both prototype Re 6/6 have been bought by Swisstrain and are now shown as owned by them at (CH-SWTR)

The sale was concluded on 16.04.2019 but has only just become known


I wonder if they intend to operate both or whether they will operate one and the second one will be a rolling parts supply?

11601 was moved to Sissach last week:

The caption suggests 11602 will be used for parts only. (It had been very heavily stripped by SBB at Bellinzona). 11601 will need several repairs including damage caused by an electrical fire.

11601 last ran in service 28.08.2015 and 11602 31.10.2014
