Maintenance centre in Frutigen

View into the toolbox of the BLS

For services to run smoothly across the BLS network, maintenance needs to be organised very carefully. After all, trains can only run on time if the lines and rolling stock are kept in pristine condition.

You’ll enjoy a glimpse behind the scenes with our tour of the Frutigen maintenance centre, and discover information about the organisation, mode of working and storage systems used for the Oberland construction and maintenance region.
