RegioExpress Kambly train
The specially designed BLS Kambly train provides a Tuesday-to-Sunday RegioExpress service direct from Bern and Lucerne to the Kambly Experience in the village of Trubschachen.
In 2010, Kambly – Switzerland’s best-known biscuit producer – celebrated its 100-year anniversary. Since then, the special Kambly train has been running between Bern, Trubschachen and Lucerne to connect the excursion destinations along the line with each other. Since the timetable change of 11 December 2015, the RE Kambly train has been operated as a dividing train (with two destinations) and with modern rolling stock. In Lucerne, Malters and Wolhusen, please ensure that you board the front section of the train in the Trubschachen-Bern direction.
One or two Kambly-design Lötschberger trains are being used both for this route and as S6 services between Lucerne and Langnau i.E. BLS conductors are available to assist and advise passengers on the RegioExpress connections. Passengers can also purchase tickets (subject to a service fee of CHF 10.00) and class upgrades (minimum fee CHF 5.00) from the conductors. On the S-Bahn services no conductors are used; instead a self-service ticket validation system applies.
The new Kambly train features low-floor entrances for travellers with disabilities or with pushchairs, power sockets in almost all passenger compartments, and large panoramic windows. The train is decorated with illustrations of various Kambly biscuits against a white background. The headrests of the seats in both classes show the class of the carriage and the Kambly logo, while the tables are adorned with quotations on various “Kambly moments” in six different languages.
Catering and family zone
Since autumn 2017, the Kambly trains have been operating with a catering and family zone. The catering area is located in the central section of the train. Passengers can purchase Kambly specialities and other sweet and savoury snacks. Also available are cold drinks and a range of coffees as well as tea and soups. A new family zone is also located right next to the catering area. On some of the tables within the section, children can solve puzzles or use a colouring book or puzzle book.
