Passenger coach B 4231

A 4 axle coach of the old days

The future B 4231 coach was delivered in 1914 by the SIG (Swiss Industry Gesellschaft) as BC4 152 to the BFD (Brig-Furka-Disentis railway). It came to the DFB in 1999 after a rich working life with the BFD and later the FO (Furka-Oberalp railway). The coach body had to be demolished. The frame was taken to Aarau in 2009, where it was temporarily stored for overhaul.

In 2015 it was sandblasted and primed. After completing the frame of the AB 4453, we will begin the construction of the coach body and the overhaul of the bogies. The wheels were equipped with new tyres already in 2015 together with those for the AB 4462 and equipped with new brake gears and brake drums. According to current ideas, the B 4231 will again be on the mountain line in 2019.
