Now there's a happy coincidence: The two sightseeing cars I'd ordered over a month ago just came in! Must be the time of year for them!

Looks like I'll be visiting the Temple of Mammon (Art Knapps Branch) tomorrow night to pick up my sightseeing cars. Apparently a Tm 2/2 #92 just arrived as well...let's hope Mammon doesn't have his evil way with me and tempt me into doing something I shouldn't! Anything you want me to ask High Priest Bob? :grin:

Hi Keith,

:grin: :grin:

Yeah, ask the HighPriest if he has any SierraValley wheelsets and how much he wants for a pair.

PS watch out for the GBp, it has been mailed!
Surprise 1! Surprise 2! Surprise 3!

Hi guys,

Check out the locomotive at 06:13, 10:22, and 16:43 today. I don't recognize the paint scheme. Is it new? It looks like it says "Budget" but I can't see anything else.
Gion?

Good shot of all the older green coaches being pulled by a brown Kroc at 09:49 today. I think the last one is 2012.

That was the official Glacier Express Anniversary train for directors, managers and official guests of the RhB and MGB. The St.Moritz-Reichenau part was in the "green" historical train, you recognize the Rhaetia-Stuebli, Filisurer Stuebli, A1102, B2060, C2012 plus one or two of the eight-wheel green coaches.

In Reichenau the party changed to the 5-car plus baggage Pullman train, hauled by C-C 412 to Trun, then changed again to the current Glacier Express (2 MGB panos, the double diner, another 2 MGB panos), hauled by 412 to Disentis, where I lost track of it.

I had the honor to drive 412 from Reichenau to Disentis.

Now you have every reason and precedent to haul modern panos with your brown or blue C-C. Just don't couple on more than four, their air conditioning will overload the C-Cs transformer...

Hello Gion-

Interesting news. I can only imagine the thrill of driving the Krok.

Do you have any information about the repaint of the Ge4/4III shown at 18:03 on June 19, 2005? I haven't seen this one before and I am not sure what the advertising is trying to sell.

http://webcam.schmalspurbahn.ch/Filisur ... 9180515170

Thanks!

Best regards,
Bob

It's the 646 and the ad is for "RhBudget", a one-year ticket for all of Graub?nden public transport. i like the way the red blends into the dark brown roof, kind of a pre-weathered effect...

Gion-

Thanks! I looked for another picture on the web, but I couldn't find anything. It was also difficult to read the slogan on the side. For example, I completely missed the 'Rh' in 'RhBudget.'

This must be a recent livery change. <?>

Best regards,
Bob

Hi Bob,

With a bit of luck "Ruedi-Haribu" has been out scouting things and will have a picture. :smile: :smile:

Hi HJ-

Ruedi-Haribu had the Blau Monster, but he didn't have the new 4/4III. I am sure it's on his list. He doesn't miss much. He and Polier are always the first two stops for such pictures.

Best regards,
Bob

Looking at the webcam today, it's a beautiful day, clear blue sky and some nice shots including the blue Kroc at 11:20. Is this the nostalgic Glacier Express? Does it run routinely through Filisur every day?

Thanks,

Martin

Well it's a great day for me, as Martin said, the Blue Croc rolls past the webcam for (I think) it's first time! :lol:

:cool:

Hello-

Is it me or does the Blau Wonder not match the blue of the Alpine Classic coaches?

Best regards,
Bob

Hi Bob,

It's supposed to be the exact same colour, shade etc. but in some of Grisu's and Haribu's shots it appears slightly lighter.

I've seen a picture of the 412 in prep i.e. bodyfiller applied, but I don't remember if they primed it. That could/would make a difference.

Cynics might say: LGB/BEMO ordered it that colour to avoid confusion with existing stock! :wink: :twisted: :twisted: :roll: :grin:
