Remarks & Notes 
On october 9th, 2015, the first future double deck Intercity trainset "Twindexx Swiss Express" from Bombardier for the SBB made its first longer journey under own power across Switzerland, from the Bombardier works in Villeneuve to Zürich Herdern (from Villeneuve to Vevey pulled by a Bm 4/4 diesellocomotive). RABe 502 203 is one of the 30 Inter Regio version trainsets (IR200). The delivery of this trains is about 3 years behind schedule and the first test runs in Switzerland are promised since several months. After the revised schedule, the first trains of this series (IR trains) should enter service in december 2016. On this particular trainset there are several things not finished yet, like the still missing "SBB signs" on front or side of cars or the rather disturbing red painted sheet metal part on the side of the front. In total the SBB will get 62 of this trains till 2020, in the versions IC200 (8 cars with dining car, baggage and family compartment), IR200 (8 cars) and IR 100 (4 cars=100 meter). An IC200 and IR200 coupled together as planned will have more then 1300 seats and will be 400 meter long.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
