Lötschberger is the name of a serrvice rather than a train - the trains have the Lötschberger branding because this the only service to travel the length of the highly scenic Lötschberg Railway - which used to be the route taken by express trains between Switzerland and Italy.

The express trains have been diverted away into the Lötschberg Base Tunnel, but the Lötschberger services still travel via Kandersteg.

These trains are operate by BLS, it and SBB are the two principle operators of mainline trains in Switzerland - but SBB sells tickets for journeys by BLS trains.

There's nothing special about the trains themselves, apart from the Lötschberger branding on their exteriors, they're little different to the trains which BLS uses for its commuter services.
