It wasn't a data error. In the internal systems the trains were correctly timetabled. But they were there like service trains or private trains, without publication. Only this point had to be corrected.

Data entry error seemed the most likely, as it was incredibly unlikely that the services would run one way on the morning and not back again in the evening

Good evening Markus.

Yes, tonight I see those three return services back in the online timetable again. Seems that the least likely of my possible scenarios (SBB error!) was indeed the case. Knowing how busy those trains are to supplement the capacity on the Genève Aéroport-Brig route, I was really puzzled they would vanish.

Thanks for your interest and investigations.

I discovered today that SBB mobile timetable no longer shows the
return workings of IR1927/29/31 from Geneva Aeroport off the
following Re4/4 diagrams.
​1927 ​Genève-Aéroport – Sion​ 16.20 – 18.33
​1929​ Genève-Aéroport – St Maurice ​16.54 – 18.43
​1931 ​Genève-Aéroport – Sion ​17.20 – 19.33
fahrplanfelder.ch and reisezuege.ch still show them. The online
timetable says, they run 29 July - 4 October. I'm investigating which
info is correct.
These trains are now back in the online timetable, but since 7 October they only start from Genève Cornavin instead of Genève-Aéroport. Obviously somebody at SBB forgot to press the "publish" button when they changed the itinerary.

IR 1931 Genève Sion 7. Okt bis 13. Dez 2019 Mo - Fr
IR 1931 Genève-Aéroport Sion 29. Jul bis 4. Okt 2019 Mo - Fr; nicht 1. Aug

Dear All,

I discovered today that SBB mobile timetable no longer shows the return workings of IR1927/29/31 from Geneva Aeroport off the following Re4/4 diagrams.

The outbound morning trains 1904/6/8 are all still shown as running as before. Does anyone know whether they now run ECS back, or operate some other services, or it’s a timetable error (admittedly very unlikely for SBB!) or ...... ?

Cheers, David
