BDWM: Wescht Fäscht update

filed on: 11.06.2015 (11th Jun 2015)

Further to yesterday's report on the upcoming events to mark the end of mixed gauge on BDWM, I have learnt that due to a boiler problem, the DVZO locomotive will not be able to take part. It will be been substituted by Eb3/5 5810 of Verein Dampfbahn Bern. 5810 is a meaningful choice as its appearance would be a recreation of its run to Bremgarten West in 1954 (when the railway dealt with heavy visitor numbers and special trains on account of a national athletics event). However, the runs to and from Bauma will not take place. As a consolation, the last run from Bremgarten west on Sunday (and hence the very last official run on standard gauge on this line) will be extended to Aarau (the train will be piloted by veteran electric Be4/4 15 on the SBB section for signalling reasons).

The timings of the other guest loco, SBB Historic's Bm 4/4 II 18451 diesel electric of 1939 are as follows:
