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!
