Notes :
(1) 465.010 on rear.
(2) 177 on rear.
(3) 465.008 on rear.
(4) Reversal was expected but for SBB operational reasons this did not take place.
(5) 184 on rear.
(6) 485.005 on rear.
(7) It was expected that everyone would detrain at Oensingen onto an OeBB special but the main train continued throughout via the connecting line hauled by the OeBB locomotives.
(8) Plus 485.005 dead-in-tow & 184 on rear.
(9) Plus 184 dead-in-tow & 485.005 on rear.
(10) The train was incorrectly routed “mainline” from Olten to Langenthal instead of via Aarburg Oftringen due to SBB operating restrictions with a loss of 1.05km from that originally quoted.
(11) The shunt to Agl Balmholz was carried out with the Tem225 dragging the complete train consist and involved two reversals with the Tem225 working on electric to/from Thun station - first reversal then on diesel for the remainder.
(12) The shunt to Bönigen works was carried out with the Tea245 dragging the complete train to Bönigen and propelling back to Interlaken Ost. The train reached the (locked) entrance gates to Bönigen works where it reversed.
