Project description: ETR610 trains on the Lötschberg axis between Bern and Brig carried out exact luggage-data surveys and related passenger behaviour evaluations. The observations provided precise information on passenger behaviour with regard to seat selection and luggage accommodation. These observations allow analogies to other vehicle types including new vehicles and provide an essential basis for an efficient room layout of luggage-storage options.
