History and profileEdit

Appearing monthly since 1978, the SER is written by correspondents (some writing anonymously) in rail transport companies, in the industry and in government.[1] Each issue consists of four parts: reports from Switzerland, reports from other European countries, international reports and a number of articles covering current topics on one or two pages each.[1] The editorial line is frequently critical of the Swiss state railways and its government regulators.[2]

The SER is published by Minirex AG, a Lucerne-based publisher of railway books,[1] and edited by Minirex owner Walter von Andrian.[2] Minirex also publishes three sister publications of the SER, which share some of its content: Eisenbahn Österreich (EBÖ) and Schienenverkehr aktuell, both covering Austria, Eisenbahn-Revue International (ERI), dedicated to international matters, and Railway Update, a bi-monthly English-language publication.

As of 2014, the Minirex publications are not available in an electronic format.
