REOS 070: Spiez station in winter

REOS visited Spiez station during the winter season. Spiez, is a junction station, situated on the Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon line (BLS) with branches to Zweisimmen and Interlaken. Nowadays, the BLS only run regional passenger and long distance freight trains. Inter Regios and Euro-City trains are operated by the SBB. Many SBB IC 2000 double deck and EW IV trains are seen using SBB Re 460s for traction.

Spiez locomotive depot plays an important role for BLS Cargo. The steep gradients of the BLS north ramp, requires additional locomotives to be added to the front and occasionally, the rear of heavy freight trains crossing the Alps. The BLS, in cooperation with Railion, pool locomotives for this use.

This film shows the variety of Regio, Inter Regio, and International passenger trains that pass thru’ Spiez. Freight runs mainly in the evenings and the coupling and uncoupling of locos, is filmed amidst winter snow conditions.

Running time: 70 minuten. Original sound recordings only, without any additional music or commentary.
