510 SBB Olten - Luzern

12-D-2644
The Olten - Luzern line is a busy passenger route linking Basel, Bern and western Switzerland with Luzern and the Gotthard route to Italy. It's not the most exciting line scenically but there is some pleasant open countryside, particularly between Nebikon and Sursee. In addition to the passenger trains, the line sees some local freight traffic and still had a few Ae6/6 workings in late 2012.

210 SBB Lausanne - Biel (Jurafuss S)

12-D-2216
The Lausanne - Biel/Bienne line is the southern part of the route linking Basel and Zürich in the north with Lausanne and Genève in the south, running parallel to, and south east of, the Jura mountains. Scenery is pleasant rather than spectacular but there are a number of good locations, particularly south of Yverdon-les-Bains. Passenger traffic is almost entirely worked by units south of Biel but there's a healthy level of freight traffic and a number of trains were regularly hauled by Ae6/6s in late 2012.

410 SBB Olten - Biel (Jurafuss N)

12-D-2567
This is the northern end of the Jurafuss route, linking Basel and Zürich in the north with Lausanne and Genève in the south, running parallel to, and south east of, the Jura mountains. The Biel - Konstanz IR service is mostly loco worked but local passengers are all units. Freight traffic is reasonably heavy with oil tanks and postal traffic predominating. A few freights were still worked by class Ae6/6 locos in late 2012.
