For traction of french high speed trains French State Railway SNCF ordered 78 samples of six axle electric loco CC 6500 in 1969. The two motor units develop 5900 kW and reach a maximum speed of 200 km/h. In 2007 the last CC 6500 quitted service.
For passenger service on narrow gauge lines with cograil sections Swiss State Railway SBB ordered 21 samples of four axle electric locos HGe 4/4 II. When operating on cograil tracks maximum speed is limited on 40 km/h, on adhesion lines are 100 km/h permitted. The locos pull for example the famous Glacier Express.
In 1929 Swiss narrow gauge railway Visp-Zermatt-Bahn VZ received five samples of four axle electric HGe 4/4 I. In 1939 a sixth, slightly improved loco followed. The locos were made for adhesion track (maximum speed 50 km/h) and cograil use (25 km/h).
