Free track ahead

The Matterhorn Gotthard Railway in Disentis in Switzerland was looking for a contemporary, powerful and above all safe snow-clearing vehicle to be deployed in tough winter conditions on the Oberalp Pass. After examining various options, a Bernina snow blower was acquired from the Rhaetian Railway at the end of 2014.

Schmidt Supra 4002 goes to Gotthard Pass

Luigi Filippi has been familiar with the Schmidt Supra snow cutter blower ever since its early days. Working with one of the first models in this series, a Supra 3000, every year he and his team of workers at Luigi Filippi SA clear snow from the Gotthard Pass and the roads around the small town of Airolo in the Swiss canton of Ticino. After many years of service, the “old lady” can now enjoy a well-earned retirement. Due to the great experience of working with this machine, it did not take Luigi Filippi long to decide which machine should replace it: a new Schmidt Supra 4002.
