Albisgütlibahn 2 returns
filed on: 08.02.2006 (8th Feb 2006)
Yesterday, BVB (Bex - Villars - Bretaye) Be2/2 8 was hauled from its resting place at Bévieux to Bex (by Be2/3 16) where Tram Museum Zürich members loaded it onto a low-loader wagon. It has arrived in Zürich today and will be unloaded tomorrow.
This tram was originally Ce2/2 2 of Albisgütlibahn (AGB), one of the private companies that operated trams in Zürich in the early years. 8 continued to see service on BVB until relatively recently, but has suffered through exposure to the elements since its withdrawal. The move to Zürich is primarily aimed at safeguarding the vehicle. Restoration is not a priority at present.
