News roundup

filed on: 15.02.2005 (15th Feb 2005)

The 1/05 edition of the quarterly Prellbock magazine has several items on Züich. There is a report on the renovation and reopening of Dolderbahn and also on the withdrawal of Forchbahn BDe4/4 and Bt4 cars, their farewell tour and their transfer to Madagascar. The article is very up to date, even mentioning the shipment of 108. It explains this was acquired as a source of spares by AOMC (Chablais).

The magazine features a discussion of Tram Bern West (a new project will be presented this autumn). There are also reports on the rebuilding of Gornergratbahn Dhe2/4 3015 (ex Bhe2/4 3015) for goods traffic, the 75th anniversary of the Glacier Express, the transfer of modern steam loco 16 from Rocher de Naye to Brienz Rothorn and future changes to the rail system beyond Bahn 2000.
