Title:  Loco hauled finale at Swiss VAE
Description:  VAE motive power is at each end, allowing a push-pull service without driving trailers. This is also necessary, as there are 50‰ (1:20) grades on the line. With the end of the loco hauled trains this is already a view which is no longer possible.

Title:  Loco hauled finale at Swiss VAE
Description:  The new Class 526 eight-car EMU trains are copper-coloured. The new «Traverso» exhibits all the typical characteristics of the other trains in the FLIRT family: levelled boarding, a spacious, clearly laid-out interior, and lightweight aluminium car bodies, which results in significantly lower energy consumption and therefore considerably reduces energy costs. The trains run at an operating speed of 160 kilometres per hour.
