Note: Planed and built as Prototypes in lightweight construction the two built units (201, 202) were The first SBB Locomotive/Tramcars which reached faboulous 125 kph. As it was ordered that they make solo runs, no draw and buffin-gear was installed. In No.202 was installed the BBC quill drive, which later was used in many locomotives. From 1944-1949 draw and buffin-gear was installed, and the whole construction was reinforced, and they got Westinghouse automatic Brakes. The Numbers changed from 201 to 601 and finally to 1001, thisone was extened 2,6 meters to have more place. No.1002 is in the Verkehrshaus Luzern exhibited. Named Roter Pfeil, because they were so fast. On the left side you can see Ce 6/8 III No.14305 one of the famous crocodiles!

for 1935, 125kph is pretty dang good as far as electric goes!

yep it is, but in 1903 a electric prototype tramcar from siemens made a record with 210,3 kph and it was broken in 1954. that's just unbelivable, but thisone here were built for normal use

now that you told me, it's true they look like space shuttle, although i don't think that this tramcar was built for space travel ;)

It certainly wasn't. But it'd be more likely to fly than an F40PH though.

Indeed, it's very a very futuristic look, I mean it was built 1935!

Because the whole technical equipement was in the two hoods, those cars hat a very low entry and passenger compartiment. Something that becomes more important 60 years later. So those motorcars were much ahead of their time!
