Remarks & Notes 
Re 4/4 II # 11198 and # 11161 (last green of the passenger division) are pulling train 13467, the luxurious Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (VSOE) on the Gotthard north ramp between Erstfeld and Amsteg-Silenen. The train started in Calais/France and is running via the Gotthard to Venice/Italy. The 16 cars were 400 meter long and had a weight of 892 ton. Since they got new bogies some years ago, they were allowed to run 100 miles per hour.
