Further to the news on Combino 659 visiting Zürich, sister unit 657 made the news when the low loader carrying it to Bern lost its footing on an icy between Lörrach and Rheinfelden on 4th January. The lorry sank into the soft verge of the road and had to be recused by two cranes, blocking the A98 during the morning rush hour. It is to avoid such situations that Zürich's Cobras are delivered by rail.

The first of RBS's Tram 2000 units to be stretched with a low-floor section is 89. It is currently being tested. The nine trams of this type are being extended by 8m to 40m (making them Be4/10) for 10 million Franks. Besides increasing capacity, this rebuild is providing low flow accomodation on these otherwise high-floor vehicles.
