Well, I took the plans from one built in exact 1/87 scal, from the original plans, but due to "room constraints" I had to reduce it a bit

First glimpse of SBB’s new double-deck EMU
9 JUN, 2015





Bombardier has opened the doors of its Villeneuve site in Switzerland to reveal the new double-deck, intercity EMU it is supplying to SBB.

It is the first time Bombardier and SBB have shown off the interior of the new Twindexx Express IR train.

The first two pre-series vehicles have now completed static testing at Villeneuve and are due to begin trials on the SBB network

Like on a model railway: tunnel, bridge, a short train. Ge 4/4 I # 605 "Silvretta", built in 1953, with the water tank car WN 9862 as fire fighting train is crossing the Stulsertobel I viaduct between Filisur and Bergün.

The driving car is always second class, but some as the one in the photo have a playing area for children, and so less seats. The coach on the other end is always a first class with a baggage compartment, so again, with fewer seats.

The train in the photo is composed as Bt-B-B-B-A-AD, so should have around 650 seats.

There are also trains with more of these coaches, including a WR (t=driving trailer, A =first class, B=second class, D= luggage compartment, WR=restaurant). The longest of these trains are so heavy that on some lines need two locos, on the Geneva-St. Gallen route some trains are composed of a loco, ~9 double deck coaches, 3 single deck coaches and another loco.

The new Bombardier double deck trains (also known as FV Dosto, "FernVerkehr DOppelSTOck") should even have nearly 1400 seats in a 16-car train (two coupled 8-car sets, 400 m long), a bit less if one is a restaurant car. Other combiantions will be possible, like an 8-car + a 4-car set.

FV Dosto does not have any Bistro or Restaurant areas, as the cars are basically DB Regio cars painted white and with better interior.

The SBB FV-Dosto will come in three versions: A 200m IC version, a 200m IR version and a 100m IR version. the 200m IC version will have a restaurant.
Furthermore these are anything but DB regio cars painted white... The whole design is fundamentally different, and is patterned after the SBB IC2000 cars.

The maximum length SBB intends to run in regular service is 400m, which is quite impressive for a high frequency IC service.
The biggest train SBB currently runs is train 842, which is the last IC from Zürich to Bern. 16 IC2000 cars and two engines... But this is basically two consists coupled to save an empty stock move...

A kind of wagon rarely seen running: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxEmSBLRDdg

One of the two wagons forming the mobile electrical substation in Balerna has been towed away on Saturday 11.7.2015 at around 14:00. As it was parked on a stub track not linked to the SBB network, it had to be displaced laterally, likely without a crane. The video shows the train running to Chiasso. It was composed of a diesel loco, a firefighting wagon (not used in this case), a service wagon carrying the equipment used to move the substation, and the substation wagon itself. Only one of the two wagons of the substation has been replaced by a container, the other is still lying there, on a track linked to the network. There are many mobile substation in Switzerland, mainly on short isolated sections of tracks.
