I have just returned from a family break in England (including a visit to the Seaton tramway and a call at Brussels on the way). Pictures of this will follow [->here]. In the meantime, I hope I haven't missed any important Zürich news.
Reports on bahnhofplatz.net indicate that as of 14th September, the following Mirages were stabled on the sidings behind Altstetten works (and presumably withdrawn): 1614-5/9/20/2/39/83/7/9/717 – all with their Zürich coats of arms removed, which may indicate they are headed for Vinnitsa. Also stabled were B4 trailers (FFA) 787/9/93/5-6/8. Stored in Wollishofen depot were Mirages 1606/7/9/16/8/44/711/2/23-4 together with Cobras 3001-2, snow brooms 1923-4 and Märlitram 1208 (the inactivity of the latter three vehicles is presumably just seasonal). It is also reported that 3002 will be the next Cobra prototype to be dismantled. The latest Cobra delivery is 3061, which would suggest that next to arrive may be the first of the Glattalbahn liveried series, 3062.
