Remarks & Notes 
Exactly 100 years after beginning of operation over the Lötschberg mountain line from Frutigen to Brig, the BLS (Lötschbergbahn is deleted from the name since a few years) ran a special anniversary train from Berne to Domodossola. The train was pulled by Ae 6/8 # 208 (privately owned and operated by association Swisstrain) and # 205 (BLS Stiftung, new organisation similar to SBB Historic) and was formed of the cars of the Swiss Classic Train (privately owned former SBB cars, completely new interior, and lettered Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon).
