On 8 November 2007, trainset 189, which had been shortened to about 200 m, set a Swiss land speed record for railed vehicles during trial runs for the ETCS cab signalling inside the Lötschberg Base Tunnel. The trainset reached 288 km/h (~178 mph). The trainset had a modified pantograph, but two of the eight traction motors had been disabled. -->wikipedia

Am 8. November 2007 stellte der auf rund 200 m Länge verkürzte Triebzug 189 während ETCS-Abnahmefahrten im Lötschberg-Basistunnel, zwischen Ferden und Lötschen, mit 288 km/h einen neuen Geschwindigkeitsrekord für Schienenfahrzeuge in der Schweiz auf. Die Einheit war mit einem modifizierten Stromabnehmer ausgerüstet, wobei in einem der beiden Triebköpfe nur zwei der vier (insgesamt sechs von acht) Fahrmotoren zur Verfügung standen.
