Remarks & Notes 
For the first time, 4 coupled "Capricorn" trains ABe 4/16 in multiple control on a test run between Chur and Felsberg, with # 3114, # 3112, # 3117 and # 3116. This more then 300 meter long train circulated several times between Chur and Reichenau-Tamins and vice versa this day, with up to 100 km/h (the maximum velocity of this trains is 120 km/h, but till now there are no such speeds possible on the RhB network). The "Capricorns" were designated as "RTZ" by the RhB, which means Regional Trainset, or also "Flügeltriebzug" = split trainsets. It is planned to take up to 4 coupled trains from Landquart to Klosters, split the train there and take 2 units to Davos and 2 units via Vereina to St.Moritz. In the background is Montalin mountain above Chur.
