Trains at Zurick
Author: edsaalig

I took these photos at the main Zurich train station on Monday, August 23, 2021.  Any history about the train in photo #3?

Gorgeous equipment, especially that last one. Amtrak looks so dull and dowdy in comparison!

Re the third photo:  Go to railvolution.net and the article 'SOB Traversos in Regular Service', which explains all, including the "explanation" of the copper color.  Sadly, these units displaced the SOB's notable Re 446 / 456 loco fleets.

Stadler Flirt Class 526 electric multiple unit for Sudostbahn's St. Gallen-Luzern service. Some info in first photo below from display at InnoTrans 2018 in Berlin. Second photo shows vending machines and third is view of seating both at low-floor level (nearest) and above trucks (farther into car).
