story

In 1985 the BOB ordered three more railcars to replace the ABeh 4/4 I from 1965 and 1979. [1]

In 1986 the three new ABeh 4/4 II (311-313) railcars were delivered. Together with the BDt 401–403 driving trailer, you can operate as a shuttle train and, in the off-season in spring and autumn, handle almost the entire operation on your own. With the delivery of the three ABeh 4/4 II, the three ABDeh 4/4 from 1949 were no longer needed and withdrawn from regular passenger traffic. [2]

business

When the new ABDeh 8/8 multiple units were delivered in 2017 , the ABeh 4/4 were withdrawn from scheduled service. If one of the new multiple units should fail, one of the ABeh 4/4 II will take over its performance.
