Switzerland: SBB sell their 20 couchette cars to RAlpin

  • News from UIC members

SBB are to sell their couchette cars to RAlpin. The 20 cars will begin operation on the rolling road (ROLA) when the timetable changes in late 2011, thus improving the comfort of truck drivers during their journey between Germany and Italy.

Several times a day, truck drivers board RAlpin couchette cars in Freiburg im Breisgau (Germany), enabling their trucks to be transported by train across the Alps to Novara (Italy).
