Daily Duo

Of the four pairs of daily München - Zürich EC trains, only one pair runs via the Allgäubahn and the eastbound train runs in darkness for much of the year. That leaves EC196, the 07:12 from München, as the only regular daytime express on the line, booked for double headed class 218s on SBB stock.

218.422 and 218.426 climbed out of Oberstaufen with EC196 on 21 August 2008.
