An unconfirmed report on Bahnforum.ch states that these locos will no longer be going to RhB as MOB have decided they cannot spare them

Another rumour says that only one of the two will go to RhB.

Last info is, that the former will get Schwab couplers and remain while the latter will soon go to Landquart. It is said that fitting the 6000s with Schwab couplers would be too expensive.

8002 is staying with MOB due to increased rolling stock requirements in the 2021 timetable

I'd rather call it a bad planning. And the new coaches are much heavier than originally plannned.

At the moment, trains with 8000 and 9000 are formed with the coaches that have been rebuilt with Schwab coupler and all trains running with coaches that still have central buffer must be tracted by 6000.

At the end of the year, the following consists could be seen:
4001_4004_4002 6006 reserve in Zweisimmen
6002 223 110-106-23x-307-306-102-101-228-305-214 reserve in Montreux

consists with central buffer:
344-5004-244
341-5001-241
342-5002-242
343-5003-243
152-220-232-6005-224-116
222-225-23x-118-119-6003

consists with automatic Schwab couplers
236-251-237-114-111
9301-217-231-9201
9302-238-303-9202
9303-252-235-212-9203
9204-103-201-107-202-9304
8001 216-218 idling in Zweisimmen and 203 with a BD in Chernex

221 is now undergoing bogie tests on Standard gauge.

"9303-252-235-212-9203"

Are you sure 212 is right? It is one of four (206 211 212 213) reportedly sold to France and I did not have it as Schwab fitted

No, sorry, this is a typo. Must read 112. None of the EW II was running that day. 307-306-305-214 were in Montreux, Some coaches seem to be in Lenk, could be the sold ones BD 206 (EW I), AB 308 and B 211-13 (EW II)

Any idea where 6001 and 6004 might have been?

Rgds, Thomas.

6001 was also in Montreux, forgot to mention it. But I haven't seen 6004 for some time. Maybe it is in Chernex.
