Walchwil train schedules after SBB project

I am going to live in Walchwil in 2021 and by that time the project of add double track in Walchwil rail way will be completed.

I was wondering in 2021 will trains other than regional train S2 stop over at Walchwil station? Before the project, there are IR46 and RE2048 trains run from Arth Goldau to Zug and there is one stop at Walchwil station. I would like to know if it is likely that in 2021, the IR or RE train will stop at Walchwil.

Many thanks for your help

Ask the SBB? If it isn‘t planned, they are the ones who may know if they plan it in 2021.

The SBB can be quite helpful when you have questions of this nature. We looked at a property some years ago with a track nearby which the real estate agent told us was rarely used for freight trains. So we wrote the SBB to obtain the specific details. They replied promptly with very different information to what the agent told us.

If you have already planned a move which cannot be cancelled then it may be a bit too late to worry about the train schedule.

The fact is you can move to a location with a certain bus /train timetable which can change depending on usage. You can be lucky or unlucky.

Re: Walchwil train schedules after SBB project

Official information says that after the construction works it will be possible for the S2 to run every 30' (before it was 60'):

https://company.sbb.ch/de/ueber-die-...en-kunden.html

No new services are mentioned. If possible I would write the SBB as suggested

You're in the groove - Wachwil [sic] is the place to be! Sometimes the trains even stop

this can theoretically happen anywhere, but in contrast to other countries, railway timetables are pre-published in a consultation phase and people can object. Sometimes things get changed (or indeed left unchanged) because of people who objected.
