  • The Re 420, originally Re 4/4ᴵᴵ, series are the most common electric locomotives of the Swiss Federal Railways. They are used for passenger services throughout Switzerland alone or in pairs. For freight services, they are sometimes paired with the Re 620, especially in mountainous regions. That pairing is referred to by the term Re 10/10. The Re 430, originally known as the Re 4/4ᴵᴵᴵ, are a derivative of the Re 420 modified for higher traction but lower speed. The Re 420 locomotives were produced over a period of 21 years, from 1964 to 1985. Re 4/4ᴵᴵᴵ Subseries:ᴵᴵᴵ When Südostbahn had the opportunity to buy one of the first batch of 50 Re 4/4ᴵᴵ locomotives before delivery, it had the gear modified for higher traction and lower speed for the steep routes of the SOB. This locomotive was delivered as number 41. Based on the SOB experience, the SBB ordered a batch of 20 Re 4/4ᴵᴵᴵ in 1969 for use on the Gotthard route Wikipedia
