A Swiss news broadcaster has accused the FV-DOSTO trains operated by Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) of being 'covid catapults'.
Swiss Federal Railways has ordered 60 IR Dosto (Stadler KISS) double decker electric multiple units from Stadler as a contract option.
There will be new international night trains in Europe from 2021, as agreed by the bosses of Deutsche Bahn, SNCF, OEBB and SBB.
Passengers had to be evacuated from their train in the Ceneri Base Tunnel due to technical problems with the vehicle.
SBB has installed solar panels to produce traction electricity. They can produce enough electricity for 1.4 million passenger kilometres.
Passenger services in Switzerland can resume fully in June following an easing of restrictions put in place because of coronavirus.
SBB's fleet of ICN Intercity Tilting Trains are to undergo a full refurbishment now that they have reached the middle of their life-cycle.
