Remarks & Notes 
A 4-car DMU "RAm TEE I" was composing the Arbalète Trans-Europ-Express Zurich-Basel-Paris Est between August 2 1964 and Sept 22 1969. The RAm TEE I was a small series of 5 powerful sets (2000 HP). Two units #501 and 502 belonged to the Swiss Federal Railway (CBB CFF). The picture shows one of them. Three units belonged to the Netherlands (NS). One set was destroyed in 1971 and the 4 others were sold to the Ontario Northland Railway in 1977 where they were painted in yellow and blue and used on the Northlander until 1992. While all motor cars had been scrapped, 6 cars were shipped back to Europe in 1998 with the project of rebuilding one motor car. The TEE Nederland Foundation is well advanced on this project.

The crack passenger trains in Europe before the high speed era (1956-1080's). They were day 1st class only trains, and seat reservation was compulsory, quite a distinctive feature at a time when one could board most trains without a reserved seat or bed.
