Remarks & Notes 
With the change of timetable on december 13th, the new bridges of the Durchmesserlinie (DML)/diameter line came in service. Re 460 # 046 is pushing her 9 car IC 2000 double deck train up the 2.7 % grade of the Letzigraben bridge, with 1156 meter the longest railway bridge in Switzerland, bringing the trains on the other side of the large track field between Zürich main station and Zürich Altstetten. The train is on the way from Romanshorn to Brig and made no change of direction in Zürich HB, which is no longer a terminus station for long distance trains, but a "going through station" with the new underground tracks 31-34.
