BLS car transport car set of 8 with middle car and 2 Auffahrwagen
A pillar of the BLS passenger service is also the auto-loading traffic on the Lötschberg between Kandersteg and Goppenstein, which has been operated on schedule since 1 June 1960. At peak times, where sports week outward and return traffic prevails, the BLS uses eight car-pusher trains. Four car-loading trains with a total of 58 type Sdt cars were procured in 1972 and 1974, manufactured in the legendary Wagi in Schlieren. The BLS fleet strategy plans to use these reliable and robust cars until 2025.
The original trains initially consisted of 8 units (6 car transporters, 2 Auffahrwagen) and were later expanded to 17 units (15 car transporters and 2 Auffahrwagen). Suitable for this purpose we recommend the hobby coach Ae 8/6 locomotive (item H10180 / -82) and the BLS control car (item H23940).
This model is not a toy. Not suitable for children under 14 years!
