Special locomotive edition "175 Years of Swiss Railroading" It all started with the "Spanish Brötli" - a delicious pastry from the Swiss spa town of Baden. That's not entirely true, of course, but on August 9, 1847, the first railway to be built in Switzerland, from Zurich to Baden, began operating on a timetable. Now, early in the morning, the servants of high society in Zurich could comfortably pick up the famous pastries that arrived on the train and bring them to the Sunday breakfast table on time, without having to walk for hours to Baden and back. For this reason, the name "Spanish Brötli Bahn" soon became established for this route.
In the years that followed, a rail construction boom also broke out in Switzerland, which reached a route length of 2,457 km within 35 years. Finally, between 1902 and 1909, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) came into being through the nationalization of five large railway companies. As a result, an increasingly dense rail network wove across Switzerland, which is still used extensively today. After all, the Swiss have an absolute top value when it comes to rail use, because on average everyone travels around 1,800 km by train every year.
On the occasion of the memorable anniversary, the SBB are presenting an electric locomotive with a correspondingly striking special design. The Re 420 251 (ex Re 4/4 II 11251) was selected for this, whereby this universally usable series formed the mainstay of locomotive-hauled SBB traffic for decades and, with 276 units built between 1964 and 1985, also has the highest number of one for the Swiss Trains built series.
