    Hello, I'm going to introduce you a possible route to the TSW: An SBB CFF FFS route in Switzerland that should be about 58KM in length.The route is Zurich(main station)-Luzern(bahnhof) and is a route that takes advantage of the new urban landscape of the most beautiful cities of this country and obviously takes advantage of the alpine landscape of Switzerland!

    The Route(58KM)

    Note:The route that I present to you has 26 stations:
    Luzern Bahnhof,Ebikon,Buchrain,Root,Gisikon,Root,Rotkreuz,Hünenberg Chämleten,Hünenberg Zythus,Cham,
    Cham Alpenblick,Zug Chollermüli,Zug Schutzengel,Zug,Baar Lindenpark,Baar Neufeld,Baar,Sihlbrugg,Horgen Oberdorf Bahnhof,Oberrieden
    Dorf,Thalwil,Rüschlikon,Kilchberg,Wollishofen,Wiedikon,Zürich Main Station (HB)

    Zurich HB (Main Station)
    upload_2018-8-30_17-5-19.jpeg
    Zürich Hauptbahnhof (often shortened to Zürich HB) (Zürich Main Station or Zürich Central Station) is the largest railway station in Switzerland. Zürich is a major railway hub, with services to and from across Switzerland and neighbouring European countries such as Germany, Italy, Austria and France. The station was originally constructed as the terminus of the Spanisch Brötli Bahn, the first railway built completely within Switzerland. Serving up to 2,915 trains per day, Zürich HB is one of the busiest railway stations in the world.
    The station can be found at the northern end of the Altstadt, or old town, in central Zürich, near the confluence of the rivers Limmat and Sihl. The station is on several levels, with platforms both at ground and below ground level, and tied together by underground passages and the ShopVille shopping mall. The Sihl passes through the station in a tunnel with railway tracks both above and below. The station's railway yards extend about 4 km (2.5 mi) to the west.

    Luzern Bahnhof

    Lucerne railway station (German: Bahnhof Luzern) is a major hub of the rail network of Switzerland, in the city of Lucerne in the canton of Lucerne. It is a terminal station serving domestic and international traffic on several rail lines, and is situated in a city centre and waterfront location on the south side of Lake Lucerne.

    The trains:

    SBB RABe 511(Stadler Kiss)
    upload_2018-8-30_17-12-5.jpeg
    The Stadler KISS is a family of bilevel electric multiple unit commuter train developed and manufactured by Stadler Rail. In Swiss Federal Railways service, it is classified as RABe 511.In the early stages of development, the KISS was known as the Stadler DOSTO, derived from the German word Doppelstock, meaning "double decker". Since September 2010, Stadler refers to the train as "KISS", an acronym for komfortabler innovativer spurtstarker S-Bahn-Zug, meaning "comfortable, innovative, sprint-capable suburban train". The KISS acronym is generally applied across all trains except for those owned by Transitio AB in Sweden, where the original DOSTO name is used instead, because "kiss" means "pee" in Swedish.

    SBB RABe 503
    upload_2018-8-30_17-13-33.jpeg
    The name, Pendolino, is used to identify a family of high-speed, tilting-technology trains, produced in Italy. These trains owe their name (pendolino can mean 'small pendulum' in Italian) to the mechanism enabling them to tilt when going round a bend. The maximum tilt of 8 degrees allows the trains to reach a speed that is up to 35% higher than for conventional trains, whilst assuring the greatest safety and comfort for passengers. Developed by Alstom Ferroviaria, which inherited tilting technology (including that of the British Advanced Passenger Train) after its acquisition of former producer Fiat Ferroviaria, they are built at Alstom’s Savigliano plants, in Piedmont, as well as in Sesto San Giovanni near Milan (which will supply the traction converters).The Pendolino first began service in Italy in 1988, with model ETR 450, followed by ETR 460, ETR 470 and ETR 480. A new model generation was launched in 2006 with ETR 600 for Trenitalia and ETR 610 / RABe 503 for Cisalpino, a railway company that operated trains between Switzerland and Italy. Manufacturer Alstom labeled them as New Pendolino.The ETR 610 / RABe 503 (also known as the Cisalpino Due as it was the second class of tilting trains used by Cisalpino) primarily differs from the ETR 600 in the sense that the ETR 610 / RABe 503 supports the voltage and signalling systems used in Switzerland and Germany. This includes the need for much heavier on-board traction power transformers necessary as a result of the lower traction power frequency of 16.7 Hz used in Switzerland and Germany in comparison with those required for the 25 kV 50 Hz AC traction power supplies. The innovative features concern the interior and exterior design, now closer to the customers’ brand strategy and an improved comfort and services for passengers. Moreover, some important technical characteristics have been increased, such as the power of the traction unit and the level of redundancy of components and equipment, in order to improve reliability. The new trains will be produced in full accordance with the new regulations governing interoperability (for example, passive security in case of impact). The train is run on international routes from Switzerland to Italy and starting with the December 2017 schedule change one daily trip from Frankfurt Main Station to Milano Centrale via the Gotthard Base Tunnel and back via Simplon Tunnel and Lötschberg Base Tunnel to Frankfurt.It has also been proposed by Trenitalia that some trains could be transferred to the Greek high-speed railway between Athens and Thessaloniki in 2018-2019.

    Very, very nice idea!
    I would love to see it!
    The etr610 would be sooooooooo great to see...
    Another idea for a train would be the re460 with ic2000 coaches.
    Nice idea, hope it will be added to TSW!
