Special Note: New Generation of Trains, hope they will be more effective as the Old Cisalpino. The Old one was hated by passenger cause he's very uncomfortable and everything is defect or broken, there are always negative news about them
English the old cisalpino was the first train who was stucked in the new Lötschberg basistunel cause of technical problems.
The Desing of the new one is really amazing (I think :D) The Front is designed to absorb 6 MJ (Megajoule) energy in case of an accident. Design by Gugiaro. As the SBB had a big mess and difference with the producers of the cisalpino 2 they maintain their 7 units themselfs. In 2010 the cisalpino AG announced insolvency. Now all 14 units are operated by the SBB, about half of them were given new livery (red, white, black). SOmetimes you can see two coupled units.

The Japanese Shinkansen are faster, 320km/h
SwissTrain Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2010
yeah thats shure, but as you may know switzerland is so small if they come with 320 kph they would fly over ;), but latley there had been some rumours about a highspeed railway line in switzerland connecting the biggest cities, born out of the idea of swiss metro, if you're intrested take a look at the link [link]

müsste wenn mich nicht alles irrt ne seeehr komplizierte achsformel werden. Der pendolino war ja eh nicht wirklich ein tolles Gefährt, aber das Design der vierten generation macht scih ja auf nach Japanischem oder Spanischen vorbild :)

Ja die achsformel wäre rcht lang. Ja der alte Cisalpino ETR 470 war nicht mehr tragbar, deshalb hatte sich die sbb auch dafür entschiedneden Zug aus dem Verkehr zu nehmen, leider hatten die neuen fast 3 jahre Lieferverspätung, dass macht natürlich die Kunden nicht happy. ja der neue ist ganz nett, auch das interieur ist toll, leider habe ich beobachtet, dass die dachverkleidung bei den stromabnehmern entfernt wurde, möglicherweise Probleme ??

Tut mir ehrlich gesagt leid, das ich da nichts weiß, da ich den Zug nie in natura geshen habe. (den 470er schon) Das die SBB nicht wirklich happy darüber war kann man sich denken, ich meine, die meisten Airlines sind auch nicht so happy über die verspätungen beim A380, genauso unhappy sind ja auch die Millitärs bei uns über die verspätung des A400M
SwissTrain Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2010
Ja es gab ja noch riesen tumulte weil die 470er derart viele Pannen hatten und die SBB hat sich von Cisalpino getrennt und wartet die Züge nun selbst
