Rhätische Bahn Ge 6/6
Ffiteen examples of this heavy electric locomotive class were built in 1921-1929. Had the previously delivered Ge24 and Ge 46 peacefully coexisted with the available steam traction due to the shoratge in haulage power, the influx of the Ge 6/6 class effectively ended the steam era at the Rhaetian Railway. Ample tractive power was now available making new orders unnecessary until after the second world war.
Most Ge 6/6 where withdrawn in the seventies
Ge 6/6 412 was scrapped as late as 2008!! Shame on you RhB!!
