Limmattalbahn to Fislisbach
filed on: 16.12.2019 (16th Dec 2019)
With Limmattalbahn now under construction between Schlieren and Killwangen, and the extension to Baden also looking increasingly likely, ideas for further extensions still are coming up. One of these features a conversion of the Nationalbahn railway line between Baden Oberstadt and Fislisbach to tram. The line no longer carries regular passenger trains but is used by SBB as a diversionary route. However, in the longer run SBB may seek to dispose of the line if a planned second direct route between Aarau and Zürich gets built. So this is obviously still a very long term (25 year plus) and speculative proposal for now.
The newspaper article linked below also features a video of the proposed route of the Killwangen to Baden section.
