The class is so named because it was the second class of locomotives of the Swiss locomotives and railcar classification type Ge 4/4 to be acquired by the Rhaetian Railway. According to that classification system, Ge 4/4 denotes a narrow gauge electric adhesion locomotive with a total of four axles, all of which are drive axles.

I have just looked at the Filisur webcam, and can see the new roof. I was there 10 years ago and there was no roof then.

There's another speciality about those trainsets: They are dual system motorcars. The RhB network is electrificated with AC 11'500 V, but the Bernina branch uses DC 1000 V. This motorcars are the first in the fleet which can run using both systems.
