Prototype: SBB celebrates 175 years of railways in Switzerland. On August 9, 1847, timetabled operations for passenger services began between Zurich and Baden on the Spanish Brötli Bahn. This marked the beginning of the development of the Swiss railway network. This historic moment in Swiss railway history is being celebrated with a befitting anniversary program. The Public Transport Association, SBB, Postbus and the Alliance Swiss Pass have designed a variety of public events in five regions for the celebrations as well as the official ceremony on August 9, 2022.
Another highlight that draws attention to the anniversary year is the Re 460 series locomotive designed by Roco in cooperation with the SBB and the artist Gudrun Geiblinger. The anniversary locomotive was provided with two different side designs. On the one hand, the world-famous "Spanish Brötli Bahn" is reminiscent of the first railway in Switzerland and the historic Zurich main station exudes the charm of the early railway era. The other side of the locomotive has arrived in the modern age: you can see the Swiss high-speed train ICN leaving the Gotthard base tunnel, a masterpiece of the Swiss railway industry.
