The Swiss electric locos Ce 6/8 III and Be 6/8 III are probably the most famous electric locos in the world. The first of the 33 locos (nick name “crocodile”) were delivered in 1919. Those locos delivered 1647 kW and reached a maximum speed of 65 km/h. The strong four –motor- units were used in heavy freight and passenger service. In the 1940s SBB modernized 13 locos (re-numbered to Be 6/8 II) with new motors to reach a maximum speed of 75 km/h. In 1977 last Be 6/8 quitted service.
