Future Releases


The (provisionally) next release expected is:

P'tits trains - Bähnli - 1 - The first issue concerned with Swiss subjects will see us in Aigle, Bex and Le Châtelard. The TPC (Transports Publics du Chablais) is an amalgamation of four lines we first encounter when they were still independent:

  • AL : Aigle - Leysin. In the mid-eighties, the rolling stock was still trundling around in its cream/brown livery.
  • AOMC : Aigle - Ollon - Monthey - Champéry. Again in the eighties, older trains and second hand stock is seen on the way.
  • ASD : Aigle - le Sépey - les Diablerets. At the same time, the ASD was severely under threat of closure. The ancient trains were a very colourful collection.
  • Aigle 1989 : A flying visit in 1989 gave a chance of seeing new trains on all three lines, but still in the old colours.
  • BVB : Bex - Villars - Col-de-Bretaye. The local trams were still running in Bex. The larger red units went to Villars, and the last stretch was the domain of the larger capacity trains.
  • TPC : The four lines of Bex and Aigle were brought into one company and modernised. High time for a fresh look.
  • SATEB : In three scary stages, we travel from le Châtelard Giétroz to the dam of Émosson-Barberine.
  • Verticalp : This is the new name for the SATEB, and a lot besides has changed as well.
