The Family Coach on Swiss Trains (Updated)
Have you been on the Family Coach of the Swiss (double-decker) trains? We’ve been there a few times now and it has been really great. The whole coach is dedicated to families, with spacious area on lower level to park strollers and a play area above. It can be found either at the beginning of end of the train, with animals painted on it (it would be hard to miss it!). The trains with these coaches are marked with “FA” on the time table.
There is also this nice corner reserved for family, which we have used happily many times now!
Here’s a shot of the play area, with a small slide and a boat.
Not all trains have this special coach yet. At the moment, these tracks have it:
- St. Gallen–Zurich HB–Bern–Geneva Airport
- Romanshorn–Zurich HB–Bern–Brig
- Basel SBB–Bern–Brig
- Basel SBB–Bern–Interlaken Ost
- Basel SBB–Zurich HB–Chur
