    "Electric locomotive 1046 009 belonging to the Austrian Federal Railways.

    - Valousek design
    - Clear view through the baggage compartment
    - Correct replication of the apron shape
    - Exact copy of headlights with reflectors
    - Ideal for drawing passenger trains
    - Switchable tail light with DIP switch

    In order to counteract the increasing demand in urban express transport and the related capacity bottlenecks, the Austrian Federal Railways ordered the class 4061 baggage railcars from the Viennese locomotive factories and the joint company ABES (an association between the companies AEG, Elin and Siemens-Schuckert Wien). A total of 25 1,600 kW railcars were built in two series. It became apparent during everyday operation that the baggage compartment was not suitable for its purpose, and therefore baggage was rarely transported in the 4061. This was one of the reasons why the ÖBB decided to classify what had previously been designated "railcars" as electric locomotives. This was accompanied by the new class designation 1046, valid from 30th May 1976.
    The 1046 009 was the only locomotive to feature the old box construction in the Valousek design."
