For the use in the French direct current network with 1.5 kV, the SNCF bought from 1957 on the powerful mixed-traffic locomotives BB 9200. By 1964, 92 locomotives were built by the companies Creusot-Loire, Jeumont-Schneider and CEM. From the beginning the machines were used to haul high-quality passenger trains from Paris station Austerlitz to Bordeaux and Toulouse. Soon, their mission was extended to the entire southern DC network of the SNCF. The locos were also used for the carriage of fast goods trains. They reached a top speed of 160 km / h and had a power output of 3850 kW.
