On the network of the Rhaetian Railroad it is the class Ge 4/4 II locomotives, which with their 2,300 horsepower and their maximum speed of 90 km/h / 56 mph have no problems pulling all kinds of trains. The first locomotive of this class was delivered to the RhB as early as 1973 - at that time still in the dark green paint scheme and with round headlights. Updated and converted several times - among other things, the locomotives were equipped with rectangular headlights - almost all of them are still in use. From commuter trains up to the Glacier Express, you can still experience these locomotives. Most of the locomotives in this class have a special paint scheme or promotional films applied to them. This model represents the original unit in the normal red paint scheme.
