Technical innovations lead to unforeseen problems in practical operation. Among other things, a new speedometer and an electronic monitoring system has been installed. The associated sensors at the cogwheels, which one is used for drive and the other for braking action only, result in no synchronous signals. The second cogwheel used for braking action has some lateral clearance while driving and the monitoring system interprets the signal as a malfunction. The responsible technicians were also at the opening ceremony and work on the problem. When the train now really runs with passengers is still uncertain. It seems a little tricky, to bring such an old railcar back on track. Rheineck, Switzerland, May 8, 2014.
