Prototype: In 1937 the SBB introduced the first Ce2/4's. There was a significant difference between the Ce2/4 and the Swiss Red Arrow because the boogies and body were completely different. The railcar was painted in a light green livery with Orange letter spelling out the words "La Flèche du Jura" or (Jurapfeil) in German, Later the SBB repainted the Ce2/4's in the traditional SBB green livery. It serves the Swiss Jura in express service and was also used for special trips throughout Switzerland. The Ce2/4's remained in service until 1969, the last one was working in Rorschach as a "harbor train". In 1977, the " Jura Pfeil" was dismantled and the parts were sold off at an auction. The Swiss Railcars were some of the most interesting and unique trains in Europe. Fulgurex Ce2/4 Jura Pfeil railcar just arrived and we have both the light green and dark green versions in stock.
