Elektrolok Re 4/4 II 11141 SBB Swiss-Express Epoche III-IV
|Manufacturer, no.||Hobbytrain H3022|
Hobbytrain has implemented the entire series 1 of the Re 4/4 II with all differences of the epochs as a model. The current delivery includes locomotives in the original version with round headlamps and scissor pantographs. In the absence of alternatives, some locomotives were rebuilt specifically for the Swiss-Express. They received an extended buffer pile, new couplings and a coat of Swiss-Express orange-gray-orange. In addition, they carry the SBB logo instead of the Swiss cross. Hobbytrain has equipped Swiss-Express version as prototypical with an extended buffer pile.
- Current consumption across all axes
- interface NEM 651 (contrary to the Hobbytrain communication no Next18 interface!)
- Swiss light change
- Consideration of all design differences in detail
- NEM coupler pocket
- LüP: 93.1 mm
The Re 4/4 II were designed as universal locomotives of the SBB and are used both before passenger trains and freight trains. With 277 locomotives it is the largest locomotive series in Switzerland. The Re 4/4 II was built from 1964 to 1985 and is still in use today. With the commissioning of the Ae 6/6 at the Gotthard a fast and efficient locomotive for fast trains was available. However, the tracks were very stressed by the two three-axle bogies. This limited the cornering speed of the Ae 6/6. With the Re 4/4 II there was now a locomotive that could drive fast in curves. The locomotive produced 4700 kW, reached a top speed of 140 km / h and was therefore classified as a class R locomotive. The design was inspired by the Re 6/6. Both locomotives occasionally drive as Re 10/10 in double traction. After a first pilot series of 6 locomotives with a length of 14,800 mm, the first series of the Re 4/4 II with a length of 14,900 mm and, like the pre-series, with only one pantograph was put into service.
