Villaz-St-Pierre / TPF RABe 527 "Flirt"
In 2011, the Public Transport operator of Canton Fribourg/Freiburg (TPF) started to operate new RegioExpress Trains between Bulle, Romont, Fribourg and Bern, for the first years in cooperation with SBB. Today, the whole route is operated by TPF, mostly with its 8 Stadler Flirt units (but there are also some trains run by NPZ units). A double unit is seen here in Villaz-st-Pierre on the SBB route Fribourg - Romont ( - Lausanne). It will reach it's next stop Romont in a few minutes and then continue it's journey on the TPF-owned branch line to Bulle, which was modernized in 2011 for the new RE service.
