cab successfully cut off and transported to altenrhein

Today we could transfer loco 703 to Vögele Recycling in Chur, and could cut off the two cabs with the help of the highly motivated and professional team of Stocker Netzbau AG and Vögele Recycling. After a whopping 6hrs of hard work with cutting torch and flex cutter, Stocker's team loaded the two cabs onto their trailer, drove our cab II to Fliegermuseum Altenrhein, and then took cab I to its final destination, the simulator hall of our partner association DESM at Boltigen BE.

In this newsreel of Swiss National TV SRF "Schweiz Aktuell" (german only), today's work s nicely shown .

Loco 703 successfully transferred to chur

This monday, we could transfer our loco 703 from Landquart to Chur according schedule. Our train driver and engineering team member Riccardo Keller made the impossible possible, and together with the loco schedule department scheduled the slightly older locomotive Ge 4/4 I 605 "Silvretta" to pull our loco 703 to Chur. So "St. Moritz" was accompanied by a "sister of age" on her last run. Immediately after our arrival at the Chur depot, our team started to dismantle a few things and to prepare the loco for tomorrow's cutoff of the cabs.
