Remarks & Notes 
Heavy articulated railcar with baggage and mail compartment FZe 6/6 # 2002 of the Blonay-Chamby Railroad Museum (BC) with a GOLDEN MOUNTAIN PULLMAN EXPRESS on the MOB line between Sendy-Sollard and Chamby. This sixaxle 810 kW railcar was built by SIG and BBC in 1933 for the Montreux-Oberland-Bernois (MOB), to pull the Golden Mountain Pullman Express between Montreux and Zweisimmen. This train was introduced in may 1931, but cancelled already in the autumn of the same year because of the world economy crisis and lack of passengers. So in fact this railcar never pulled the timetabled Pullman Express, but there were made some publicity photos in the 1930' with this composition. In the evening of the 8th september 2017, such a train was arranged for photographers by the MOB (4 Pullman cars) and the Blonay-Chamby (railcar FZe 6/6). The railcar # 2002 is running for the BC since 2008 and is beautyfully restored. The 4 Cars of the MOB are not original, but modern rebuilts in the appearance of the cars from the 1930'.
