Hi I saw in sbb website there are play areas in trains. Is there a way to find out what trains will have them.

Hi Suhki,

All InterCity (IC) double-deck trains are equipped with a jungle style family coach if marked “FA”

When searching for your train connection on the Swiss railways timetable, look for FA on the legend.

FZ means family area but no play zone.

See attached for a legend example.

It would be helpful to know any particular route you are thinking of travelling on - the journey would need to be more than a short hop to make it worthwhile using the family area.

The PDFs of the official Swiss timetable clearly show trains with family play areas, the letters 'FA' indicate a coach with this is included in the train.

Example PDF from the Bern - Olten line:

Hi 1960man,

I tried your link twice and both times get a 404 Not Found.

The link works now. The letter "f" was missing at the end.

Here are some photos of what the Swiss FA coaches look like. www.liligo.fr/magazine -voyage/suisse-wagons-train-famille-paradis-enfants-40653.html
