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).
In 1949 Belgian State Railways SNCB received three samples of four axle electrics 120.01-03. In 1971 the locos were numbered for 2001-2003, in 1976 numbers changed to 2801-2803. The locos developed 1985 kW and reached a maximum speed of 130 km/h.
Between 1928 and 1956 the Swiss State Railway (SBB) had received 106 samples of side rod equippes electric shunting locomotives of Class Ee 3/3. The different series differ externally very much, but drivetrain is quite close. The tree axle locomotives reach a maximum speed of 40 (1st series) and 50 km/h (5th series ).
In 1928 German Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG) received 38 samples of electric 2-8-2 loco E17. The eight motor locos reached a maximum speed of 120 km/h and were used by DB untill 1980. DR scrapped the final two locos in 1968.
For traction of fast passenger trains under 1,5 kV DC and 25 kV AC system French State Railway SNCF ordered 205 samples of four axle BB 22000. The locos develop 4140 kW and reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
French electric railcars Z 27500 debuted in 2005. French State Railway SNCF ordered 211 samples of 1300 kW railcars in three or four car units. The units reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
Between 1971 and 1978 French State Railway SNCF ordered 56 samples of electric loco BB 15000 for traction of fast passenger trains. The four axle loco develop 4400 kW and reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
For cross border passenger service French State Railway SNCF had ordered ten units of six axle electric loco CC 70100. The locos had delivered 3670 kW (CC 40101-40104) or 4480 kW (CC 40105-40110). Frist series locos reached a maximum speed of 240 km/h, the second series reached only 220 km/h for better tractive power.
For main line freight train service French State Railway SNCF received 180 samples of four axle electric BB 27000 between 2002 and 2006. The four motor locos deliver 4200 kW and reach a maximum speed of 140 km/h.
