WSB fleet renewals

filed on: 11.06.2007 (11th Jun 2007)

WSB ABt ReinachOn 3rd April, WSB (AAR) announced that it had selected Stadler to deliver 10 new driving trailers (ABt 51-60) for 14 million Franks to enter service in 2009 (plus an option for two more). These cars will be used with Be4/4 15-17/19-27 replacing Bt 71-79 (the bogies of which will be re-used for the new cars). These units will have first class compartments — a novelty for WSB. The matching motor cars will be refurbished with new interiors and air conditioning. Be4/4 17 has been selected as a prototype and is currently being rebuilt in WSB's Schöftland workshop.

The more modern Be4/8 28-34 are also to be refurbished and have first class areas added. There is no fresh news about the acquisition of BDWM's Be4/8 21-25 (which are essentially identical to 28-34). These would replace WSB's older stock (Be4/4 9-14, BDt 80-85).
