[CH] In the picture: More scenic tests for the FLIRT of BLS

At the beginning of June, Railcolor News showed you a photo-report of the ongoing BLS FLIRT 4 tests. Consider this article as a sequel with even more scenic views from Switzerland.

We thank Alain Mühlegg and Pascal Good for sharing their beautiful pictures with us.

Another FLIRT 4 test train was seen in action in Switzerland on 28.07.2020 with a route set between Sargans and Landquart. While in our previous post we saw RABe 528 102, this time it is unit 101 that gets the attention:

The first two images, taken by Alain Mühlegg, show the train traveling between Sargans and Bad Ragaz.

We have saved the best for the last. Behold the beauty of the Rhine bridge, which is located between Bad Ragaz and Maienfeld:

The test ride is part of the one-year testing phase, which precedes the fleet’s entry into commercial service. Want your images featured on Railcolor News too? Check out our submission form by clicking here.
