Hag Ae 6/6 Obwalden mit Seetal-Warnfolien

Bitte entschuldigen Sie meine Google Deutsch

Ich versuche zu verstehen, warum die Ae 6/6 Obwalden mit Seetal-Warnfolien (110 42) so gemalt ist. Es ist der einzige Motor, den ich mit den gelben und orangefarbenen Streifen gesehen habe. Kennt jemand den Grund dafür?

Vielen Dank

Please excuse my Google German

I am trying to understand why the Ae 6/6 Obwalden mit Seetal-Warnfolien (110 42) is painted the way it is. It is the only engine I have seen with the yellow and orange stripes. Does anyone know the reason for this?

Thank you

The "Lake Valley RR" (Seetalbahn) has some specialities compared to other SBB lines. One are the tight clearences next to the parallel streets. Due to many grade crossings, accidents are - or at least were - quite frequent.
To prevent that, some earlier equipment like RBe 4/4 and De 4/4 railcars or Ae 6/6 locos (like the one mentioned) got yellow/orange high-visibility stripes. The stripes where made of removable films.
Todays modern emu (RABe 520) have a narrower body than usual standard gauge equipment and most of the grade crossings are either removed or equipped with flashers and crossing gates.

Du meinst diese da:

Bei der Ae 6/6 waren diese nur magnetisch angeheftet.

Bilder sagen mehr als tausend Worte:…TW-34913_01.jpg…hn-54051_01.jpg…hnuebergang.jpg…et-63638_01.jpg…teaser-goldbach…-09-16_0390.jpg

By the end of the 20th century, the Seetalbahn had by far the worst safety record of all SBB lines. Between 1987 and 1992 the line accounted for around half of all the SBB's level crossing accidents and there were nine fatalities on the line. Improvement of safety was therefore a major target for the line

...and finally, a series of pictures of other Seetal equipment (either prototype or models) equipped with the warning colors:…streifen+bilder

Vielen Dank für die Informationen. Ich habe Beens Fortunate eine dieser zu akquirieren. Es ist gut geeignet, um mein Layout da es eine Reihe von schlecht kontrollierte Kreuzungen sind, wie Sie aus dem Bild sehen kann.


Thank you all for the information. I have been fortunate to acquire one of these. It is well suited to my layout as there are a number of poorly controlled crossings as you can see from the picture.

Thank you

Here is a video or two of operation on the Seetal line:

The Seetal line has a number of side streets, roads and even driveways that cross the tracks to reach the main road which runs parallel to the track. I don't know which came first, the rails or the road, but it is pretty unique for a normal gauge operation in Switzerland.

Oh, and good luck with your fortunate beens. (If it was beans, maybe you could be like Jack)
