Some Swiss stuff Dec 2019

All action at Morgues with (wikipedia reckons) the entire BAM loco fleet involved in one freight. It had arrived off the narrow gauge with the ridiculous looking (standard gauge buffers above the headlight!) 21/22, shunters 147/152 involved in the gauge changer and just visible ex-BLS 420506 ready to take the train out on the mainline. Typically all passenger trains are some cart rubbish.
11199 and a rake of bangers with 11197 powering on the rear make the station call at Montreux working a Geneve-Brig IR vice the usual 460 and IC set.
“Jellymould” 460058 is the booked form for Geneve-Brig services and seen here propelling out of Montreux.
Being a total amateur in Switzerland and a far too high number of dud 460s appearing when “MOB” 6003 dropped out on the narrow gauge out of Montreaux I leapt on for a run up the hill to Chernex. I think its a loco…
End of November, so doom bashing of some high order on SOB, a private Luzern-St Gallen route which was going over on totality to some flirt deathtraps the following weekend. Three of six sets were hauled including lurid 446018 seen here.
BLS 420504 arrives at Erlanbach with a Zweisimmen to Interlaken service last week. Given BLS are supposed to have six of these available for two diagrams, i was unimpressed with the swines providing a cart to come here instead of the other diagrammed 4/4 hauled set…
Baden is the spin shack for Re 4/4 moves on the xx36 Zurich-Basel services, which are now the most concentrated work for the class. 11139 is seen here at dusk.
And an hour later 11153 and 11146 paired for a bigger load on the 1736 Zurich – Basle commuter. Double decker doom carts have now made significant inroads into passenger work for these locos on SBB mainline passenger.
