[CH] In the picture: The Geaf 2/2s of Rhätische Bahn in operation

Another locomotive delivery story concluded. Railcolor News covered the order in 2018, their delivery followed in 2020 and tests began shortly, preceding the entry into service of the first machine. Now it is time to sit back and enjoy some nice pictures, showing the Geaf 2/2 fleet of Rhätische Bahn (RhB) in action.

The Railcolor team thanks Gunther Lange for sharing his beautiful pictures with the magazine.

Railcolor News brings you a high-quality picture gallery, featuring four out of a total of seven Geaf hybrid locomotives of RhB, shunting in both electric and battery mode. Here we go!

Geaf 20607

But the Geaf 2s don’t shunt only passenger cars, of course. We conclude with an image of 20607, returning in battery mode from the Holcim shunting yard, Untervaz-Trimmis:

Missing a visual on the first two locos of the series? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Geaf 20601 was previewed upon delivery, while Geaf 20602 was already featured in another ‘in-the-picture’ article with imagery from Gunther Lange. Enjoy! As for 20605, we’ll have to wait a bit more to pop-up on our radar.
