Remarks & Notes 
Re 4/4 (Re 425) # 195 of the BLS is pulling the BLS Cargo container train 68332 from Ems Werk to Basel Birsfelden Hafen, on the RhB line between Felsberg and Chur. On this 1 meter gauge double track line between Domat-Ems and Chur, one track is a double gauge standard (1435 mm) and 1 meter track, used for the standard gauge traffic to and from the EMS works. The containers will go by ship from Basel Birsfelden Hafen down the Rhine for export oversea. The cars are articulated sixaxle Sggrss of AAE (Ahaus Alstätter Eisenbahn leasing company). The locomotive is running with the 11000 V 16,7 Hz of the RhB overhead wire (insteadof 15000 V), which slightly reduced power. Most modern 15 kV locomotives have problem with such reduced voltage...
