Product Features and Details
Prototype: The Swiss Ae 6/8 electric locomotives of the Bern-Lötschberg-Simplonbahn (BLS) were built from 1926 to 1943, they were comparable to the iconic Swiss Ce6/8 Crocodiles in terms of the tractive force and running performance. The first Ae6/8's were built in 1926 and 1931 by Breda and SAAS, and they were delivered with square cabs. In the early 1950's the Ae 6/8's were retrofitted with more mordern round cabs. The Ae6/8's was the most powerful electric locomotive in the world at the time, only the heaviest freight trains were transported via the Lötschberg by the Ae6/8. Individual machines of this series were leased many times by SBB and used on the Gotthard railway.
