Remarks & Notes 
Ce 6/8 I # 14201, ordered from SLM and BBC in 1918 as Fc 2x3/4 # 12201, delivered to the SBB in July 1919 and first tested on the Bern-Thun line, which was electrified already. From March 1921, it was assigned to the Erstfeld depot for freight trains service on the Gotthard line. The "Grossmutter" (grandmother) or "Köfferlilok" (small suitcases locomotive, because of the two stems at the front) has 2370 HP and a top speed of 65 km/h and was originally built as a test locomotive for later orders, but a larger number of Ce 6/8 II and Be 4/6 locomotives were ordered before the # 14201 could be delivered and tested. Withdrawn in 1982 and not operapable any more in the collection of SBB Historic in Erstfeld. On the right is "Roebuck" Be 4/6 # 12332 of SBB Historic, built in 1922 by SLM and BBC in a series of 40, with 2040 HP and Vmax 75 km/h for passenger trains on the Gotthard line. The locomotive is not operational any more, it was exhibited at Baden station from 1974 to 1982, then moved to the Swiss Museum of Transport, Lucerne (VHS Luzern), but had to be moved to a shed in Arth Goldau due to lack of space and is now part of the beautiful collection of SBB Historic in Erstfeld.
