Chartered carriages and trains

With Swiss Travel System, guests start their meetings and incentives the minute they arrive in Switzerland – already on the journey to their destination. Several SBB charter trains create added value and offer a unique atmosphere.

Red Arrow “Churchill”

This legendary train was specially designed to mark the occasion of the Swiss National Exposition in 1939. It owes its nickname to the former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (1874-1965), who travelled across Switzerland on this train during his visit in 1946. Even today, passengers can use it on individually selectable routes – just like the famous politician did – while enjoying culinary highlights or a relaxing aperitif. Further information

Saloon carriage “Le Salon de Luxe”

Passengers who want to use the travel time between the airport/border station and their destination for a first meeting travel in style in the charter coach “Le Salon de Luxe” – a conference room on wheels. This coach is bookable in individual configurations specifically tailored to the client’s needs, e.g. with seating around a conference table, at tables of four, or in comfort seats.

The coaches are air-conditioned and offer modern conference equipment such as beamer, speaker system, notebook connectors, and flipchart. If clients plan a meeting with truly extraordinary ambiance, the “Salon de Luxe” can be integrated into a charter train including a dining car. Further information

Double engine train “Blue Arrow”

Built in 1938, the double engine train “Blue Arrow" of the BLS appears timeless with its simple design and lightweight, streamlined front. Large windows and an open view through the coach compartments provide a unique panoramic view. 

Trans Europ Express “TEE”

The modern and prizewinning interior design of the Trans Europ Express “TEE” surpassed all expectations of 1st class passengers of its time (1961 - 1987). The train was also exceptional in terms of en, being able to operate on all four power systems of European standard gauge tracks. When these trains were finally replaced by more modern ones, one composition could fortunately be saved. In its original red and cream paintwork, it is “back on track” as a historic luxury train.
