For traction of heavy train at Gotthard mountain Swiss State Railways SBB received three samples of 2-8-4-4-8-2 electric locos Ae 8/14 between 1931 an 1939. The giants developed around 11.100 HP and reached a maximum speed of 110 km/h.
The Swiss electric locos Ce 6/8 III and Be 6/8 III are probably the most famous electric locos in the world. The first of the 33 locos (nick name “crocodile”) were delivered in 1919. Those locos delivered 1647 kW and reached a maximum speed of 65 km/h. The strong four –motor- units were used in heavy freight and passenger service. In the 1940s SBB modernized 13 locos (re-numbered to Be 6/8 II) with new motors to reach a maximum speed of 75 km/h. In 1977 last Be 6/8 quitted service.
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 ).
For regional service with short stop distance Swiss SBB ordered 74 electric railcars KISS in 2012. Also German ODEG und Westfalenbahn, Luxemburg CFL, Swiss BLS and Austrian Westbahn ordered trains. The trains consist out of three (CFL), four (ODEG, SBB, BLS), or six (SBB, Westbahn) cars and reach a maximum speed of 160 km/h (Westbahn 200 km/h).
Between 1984 and 1996 Swiss State Railway SBB had ordered 134 Units of electric railcar RBDe 4/4 (later called RBDe 560 NPZ Domino). For adding capacity two rebuilt coaches EW I or EW II were put between the new end cars. The motor car delivers 1650 kW and reaches a maximum speed of 140 km/h.
During 21 years Swiss State Railway SBB ordered 276 samples of four axle electric loco Re 4/4 II. The four motor units develop 4700 kW and reach a maximum speed of 140 or 125 km/h depending on gearing. During the 1990 the locos were renumber for Re 420 and Re 421.
For service under 3 kV DC and 25 kV AC catenary Belgian State Railway SNCB and CFL of Luxembourg ordered multi-purpose electric loco at Alstom in 1998. The locos develop 5000 kW and reach a maximum speed of 200 km/h. The 60 Belgian locos are classified as HLE 13, the CFL numbered them Class 3000.
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.
