The BB 22200 is a French electric locomotive class for use both on the SNCF's 1.5 kV electrified DC network and on the 25 kV 50 Hz electrified AC network. The design of these locomotives, with their so-called "nez cassé" (broken nose), was created by the Frenchman Paul Arzens, who was responsible for designing several SNCF locomotives around that time. In the years 1976 to 1986, a total of 205 locomotives in six different construction series were produced by Alstom. Due to the multi-system capability and the design as a general-purpose locomotive, the BB 22200 is used on almost all standard-gauge electrified routes in France to haul freight and passenger trains.
