WSB / AVA update

filed on: 19.12.2019 (19th Dec 2019)

WSB is the narrow gauge railway (now operated by AVA) connecting Menziken and Schöftland to Aarau.

With WSB's new Stadler Saphir ABe 4/12 70-74 and the ABe 4/8 28-39 now handling most of the traffic, the older Be 4/4 + Bt sets are now relegated to two weekday diagrams. Some of these are in storage in Suhr but are being regularly swapped against the active ones to keep them operational. These are (refit) Be 4/4 16, 17, 20-27. 15 has been converted to a de-icing vehicle. 18 was withdrawn in the 1980s due to fire damage. The last vehicle still in orange livery is 19, which last saw service five years ago and has been cannibailzed for parts. The vehicle is now in Schöftland and awaiting scrapping.
