RhB ABe 8/12 N XL L M4

In 2010, a new era started with the year´s summer timetable among RhB´s rolling stock: the first 15 copies of the three-part “Allegra” dual-voltage railcars, ordered from Stadler, replaced some of the locomotives which had seen better days.
The powerful and air-conditioned ABe 4/8 3501-3515 can be either used on the main line´s AC system or the DC-powered “Bernina” line.
With further procurements, the operational concept of locomotive-drawn trains has changed with the exception of the Albula more…

RhB ABe4/4 II 41-49 N XL L M4

Since nearly 50 years Swiss narrow gauged Rhaetian Railway (RhB) uses their four axle electric railcars ABe 4/4 II. Four traction motors deliver 940 HP and enables the railcars to reach a maximum speed of 65 km/h. Four of the nine cars are still in use, two of them can be seen daily with nearly any kind of train.

RhB Ge 2/4 N XL L M4

In 1913 Swiss narrow gauge Rhaetian railway RhB ordered seven samples of small electric loco Ge 2/4. The locos are equipped with side rods and deliver 228 kW. For additional tractive effort, RhB increased power up to 450 kW at two locos. So the maximum speed increased from 45 to 55 km/h.

RhB Ge 4/4 I N XL L M4

The Rhetian Railway (RhB) of Switzerland ordered 10 four axle electric locos Ge 4/4 for the meter gauge Stammnetz at SLM in 1947. The 1184 kW locos reach a maximum speed of 80 km/h and are used for passenger and freight service. more…

RhB Ge 4/4 III N XL L M4

For freight and passenger trains on the Stammnetz Swiss Rhetian Railways (RhB) ordered 12 samples of four axle four motor Ge 4/4 III. The metre gauge locos develop 3100 kW and reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. Swiss Biére-Apples-Morges-Bahn (BAM) ordered another two internally and externally nearly identical locos.

Engineer/driver mode:

F4 - Pantograph up / down (only available in Engineer/driver mode). Engineer/driver mode switch on with CV170 = 1, Engineer/driver mode switch off with more…

RhB Ge 4/6 N XL L M4

In 1913 the Rhetian Railway (RhB) of Switzerland needed eight electric locos for their first AC line between Samedan and Scuol. The assembly had been done by SLM in Winterthur. The four driven axles are connected by side rods. Wheel arrangement is 2-8-2. With a tractive power of 1280 HP the loco reached a maximum speed of 34 mph. The last of the very successful locos had been taken out of service in 1984. In Swiss depot in Samedan 353 is still operated for fan trips

RhB Ge 6/6 II N XL L M4

In the late 1950s the narrow gauge Rhetian Railway (RhB) of Switzerland recommended stronger locos for haevy freight and passenger service. After a pre-series of two six axle locos (#701 and #702) the RhB ordered a series of five more locos (#703 - #707) that show differences in front design. Technical equipment of the locos is the same. The end trucks are interchangeable with those of four axle Ge 4/4 I. The locos develop 2398 HP and reach a maximum speed of 80 km/h. Even after around 50 years more…

SBB Ae 8/14 N XL L M4

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.

SBB Ae6/6 / Ae610 N XL L M4

In order to be able to cope better with the steadily increasing flow of passengers and goods over the Gotthard after the Second World War, the Swiss Federal Railways SBB procured a total of 120 units of the six-axle electric locomotive Ae 6/6 from 1952. The locomotives, which were equipped with hollow-shaft drives, were fitted with the N 28 i high-voltage switchgear, which was state-of-the-art at the time and was also suitable for difficult hill climbs. The elegant locomotives were also fitted more…

SBB Ce 6/8 III - Be 6/8 III N XL L M4

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.
