Main > ReferenceSwitzerland    SBB electric multiple units (EMUs) and electric regional commuter trains        

Welcome to the SBB EMUs section of the 4rail.net Railway Pictures Archive

Local commuter train traffic in Switzerland is active and frequent. There are so called S-Bahn networks around several major cities, for example Zürich, Bern, Basel and Geneve. Short distance commuter trains were still in the late 1960s mainly locomotive driven, but the tendency has ever since been towards electric multiple units without a separate locomotive. On this page we show some of SBB´s EMU trains, starting from the older ones of the 1960s and ending up at the highly modern ICN and FLIRT trains towards the bottom of the page.
