Remarks & Notes 
Four BLS Re 4/4 are waiting their next assignment in front of the Brig BLS shed. These powerful 4-axle beasts produce 4980 kW (6770 HP), weighting only 80 metric tonnes. 35 units were built between 1964 and 1983. They derived from the BLS Ae 4/4, an engine ahead of its time, it was a wonder as a full adhesion 4-axle engine that attracted the attention of other railroad companies across the world. Now, the Ae4/4 are withdrawn and the Re 425 are reaching the end of their lives.
