Notes from latest visit.
First tunnel out of Filisur heading for Bergŭn and the last one before arriving there are undergoing repairs. There are a large number of engineer’s vehicles stabled at Bergŭn, in the sidings, the platform normally used by the winter shuttle trains and also the line heading into the Museum. (C312 and BSW-4)
The first bridge out of Bergŭn towards Preda is being repaired.
The tunnel works display at Preda is now open, built into 3 logs are display cases with G scale locomotives and some wagons/coaches. This includes a Kiss Ge 6/6II, an LGB Ge4/4II and an LGB 20x loco. Total value around £3,500-£4,000. Any prospective visitors should bring a chain saw.
Two short sidings have been installed at Spinas they are not yet signalled or have overhead wiring. One bonus of the works is that there are now proper toilets inside the station building replacing the hole-in-ground versions that used to be outside. The alterations at St Moritz mean that currently, the station is split in two sections, there are no tracks connecting the Bernina side to the mainline side at present.
Arosa line trains are working in push-pull mode, railcar at the Arosa end.
Formations on this line were noted as :
BDt1721, B2448, A1263, 3506
BDt1751, B2441, A1268, 3502
BDt1722, B2435, A1269, 3507
All the coaching stock has a blue diamond on the coach ends below the blue triangle.
