I love the interior. The seats look so classic (in a positive sense), resembling the non-round shaped comfortable 1980s/early 1990s seats .

So SBB is going for cellular mobile (3G or 4G) sign amplification instead of mobile Wi-Fi?

What is wrong with round-shaped seats? They are meant to offer comfort while being thinner as long as the passenger falls within a 95% range of body dimensions (for those who don't they are less comfortable than flat surfaces).

Sure, but they look tacky and dated when situated in an environment comprised of mostly straight lines and edges.

Proposal for 11.5 Billion expansion of the rail network

As demand in the railway sector is growing strongly in the coming decades, the rail network needs to be further expanded. At its meeting on 29 September 2017, the Federal Council proposed investments of CHF 11.5 billion by 2035. These investments improve heavily overloaded lines, enable the expansion of the network of private railways and provide express connections for freight transport. Projects included in the 2035 extension are the Brüttenertunnel, the Zimmerberg Basistunnel II as well as developments between Yverdon, Lausanne and Geneva, the Zurich-Stadelhofen railway station and medium-sized railway stations. The submission is now in the consultation.

Train ferries on Lake Constance (Bodensee), shared between Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Known routes were from Romanshorn CH to Friedrichshafen D, Lindau D and Bregenz A, closed respetively in 1976, 1939, 1915. These pics are from 1954.

http://forum.milanotrasporti.org/vie...620354#p620354

Another train ferry ran between Thun and Därligen until 1893, because the Därligen-Interlaken-Bönigen opened without any rail connection and remained isolated for a while. The section Interlaken-Bönigen was clsoed later. Note that it is said that this railway was purposedly built with two fixed bridges on the river between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz so as to impede any shipping betwen the two lakes...this secion of the river is otherwise flat and could easily be made navigable.

From the timetable change InterCity and InterRegio lines will be numbered.

Numbers are usually derived from parallel motorways, so as they are easier to remember for passengers which already know road numbers.

In the case of two-digit numbers, it is the first one that denotes the corridor.

For instance, IC 2 is Zürich-Lugano, while IC 21 is Basel-Luzern-Lugano and IR 26 is Basel-Luzern-Erstfeld-Göschenen, as A2 is the Gotthard motorway. While IC 3, IR 36 and IR 37 are different services between ABsel and Zürich, as A3 is the motorway that connects the two cities. IR 90 follows the A9.

There are two big exceptions as IC 8 doesn't follow A8 motorway, and IR 70 doesn't follow A7. A4 motorway is roughly Schaffhausen-Zürich-Arth Goldau(-Flüelen), but here rail lines numbers are also an exception.
