there was again a move: departure 11.25, arrival Amsterdam 22.15, Hoek van
Holland 22.50. During the summers of 1977 to 1979 (daylight saving time

the times moved to a departure of 11.15 and an arrival of 21.55. In the
summer of 1980 the section Genève-Bern was not run (and departure in Bern
one hour earlier because of time difference). From the summer of 1982 the

In the summers of 1983 and 1984 a branch from München was added with the

Stutgart/Stuttgart-Heilbronn-Eberbach-Heidelberg-Mannheim, departure about
10.05. From the summer of 1985 the train was run later, departure Basel
about 13.10, arrival Amsterdam about 20.35. Also the branch from München
was now running in winter too, lengthened from Salzburg in summer with
the stops: Salzburg-Freilassing-Traunstein-München/München-Augsburg-Ulm-
Stuttgart/Stuttgart-Heidelberg-Darmstadt-Mainz. Departure Salzburg 9.50,
München 11.40. The branch to Hoek van Holland was formally run under
a different number (probably 20006) but that number was not
publicized; the branch from Salzburg/München until Mannheim/Mainz was run
under number 16. Renumbered in TEE 16/14.

Holland was put forward to about 7.20. During the summers of 1977 to 1979
(DST in the Netherlands) departure was one hour later. In the summer of
1980 the section Bern-Genève was not run (and arrival in Bern one hour
earlier because of the time difference). From the summer of 1982 the
train terminated in Basel with an arrival time of about 15.30.
In the summers of 1983 and 1984 the branch to München was added (arrival
about 18.05). From summer 1985 the train was put forward with a
departure of about 7.00 and arrival in Basel of about 14.25, also the
branch to München was added (arrival 15.44) extended to Salzburg
