BLS Ae6/8 Electric Locomotive – Hobbytrain (by Lemke) H10180

BLS Ae 6/8 8-axle electric locomotive brown No. 205, Ep.V

The Ae6 / 8 locomotives of the Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon railway (BLS) were built as early as 1926-1943. Based on the required tractive force, the Ae6 / 8 of the DLS were comparable to the Ce6 / 8 of the SBB (crocodile). The first four copies were built in 1926 and 1931 by the Breda and SAAS companies and initially had straight cabs and a small porch, which were rebuilt in 1955 and 1956 in its present form. Until the introduction of the Ae8 / 14 by the SBB, the Ae6 / 8 was the most powerful electric locomotive in the world. Basically, only heavy and heaviest freight trains were transported across the Lötschberg at this time with the Ae6 / 8. Individual machines of this series were leased several times by the SBB and used on the Gotthard railway.
