The BLS Ae 6/8 is a heavy e-locomotive dating from 1939. Like some other machines of the BLS, the you can access the loco over a diagonal platform in the front of the machine. Between 1954 and 1956, on the four machines of this type, one current collector was removed.

We built the BLS Ae 6/8 like the original version with two pantographs, and also in the later version with only one pantograph and brakeing resistances on the roof.

This series was ordered by Fulgurex.
