37473 - SBB Class Re 421 Electric Locomotive (HO Scale)
Electric locomotive Re 421
Re 421 SBB Zurich-Munich
A major project will be completed in 2020. The electrification of the Allgäu has long been a concern of Deutsche Bahn and should be completed this year with the large section from Geltendorf to Lindau. This means that international trains between the metropolises of Zurich and Munich can finally be operated electrically from 2021 onwards. The travel time is reduced from almost 5 to under 3.5 hours. Since the beginning of the year, SBB has been promoting the new era with the Re 421 379 in a dark blue outfit. The locomotive runs daily on the route between Zurich and Lindau. Reason enough to present this "splash of colour" within the Re 4/4 II family as a model.
