The SBB needed a heavy, particularly powerful locomotive for freight service able to master steep grades on the Gotthard route with its many curves. Locomotives were developed in the classes Be 6/8 III and Ce 6/8 III that entered railroad history with the nickname "Crocodile" due to their striking appearance. The striking articulated design of these units fulfilled the long standing requirement for trouble-free transport of freight over the Gotthard. Since improvements were continuously applied to these locomotives, numerous versions existed, both in a green or brown paint scheme, were unmistakably recognizable as the "Crocodile", and exercised a special fascination.<
