The Ae 3/6? came into operation between 1921 and 1929 and were in regular service for over 70 years. Initially used for the high-quality express train transport on the east-west axis, the machines also proved their worth in regional, postal and goods train services. They were found in all three parts of the country and on all railway lines - with the Saint Gotthard route being rather an exception. Only at the very beginning, the SBB used the Ae 3/6? on mountain lines, afterward, only in exceptional cases.
