Large enterprise


The takeover of the Gotthard Railway by the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) in 1909 brought about drastic changes. The most important innovation was the electrification of the Gotthard Railway, which now has top priority, with electrical operation on the actual ramps from Erstfeld to Biasca and the Gotthard Tunnel on December 12th Was recorded in 1920. Finally, from May 28, 1922, the line from Lucerne to Chiasso could be operated with electric locomotives. For this, however, the SBB needed a whole host of new locomotives - and with the so-called “Crocodile”, “the” Gotthard locomotive for freight trains was born. Between 1919 and 1922, 33 copies were initially delivered as Ce 6/8 II 14251-14283. Two drive frames, each with three driving axles and a wheel set, were connected by a close coupling. A short locomotive body was enthroned between the two engine frames, which ensured excellent manoeuvrability in curves. In 1926/27, steadily increasing services in freight transport prompted the SBB to procure another 18 crocodiles as Ce 6/8 III 14301-14318. With 1,809 instead of 1,647 kW, they had a higher output. Its drive with two traction motors per drive frame had been changed a little compared to its predecessors and was now carried out via the so-called Winterthur helical rod drive with the help of a blind shaft. Together with their older sisters, they dominated heavy freight train service on the Gotthard in the decades that followed. In the mid-1950s, their maximum speed could be increased from 65 to 75 km / h and so they were consequently redesignated as Be 6/8 III 13301-13318. Their use on the Gotthard came to an end with the appearance of the Ae 6/6 at the end of the 1950s. All machines were then initially transported from the Erstfeld depot to the Basel depot and from there to other locations. The "crocodiles" made almost all of Switzerland unsafe in front of freight trains. At the end of their career, however, they were only allowed to pull light general cargo trains. The last Ce 6/8 III disappeared from the rails in April 1977, but two copies have survived with the numbers 13302 (MEC Horgen) and 13305 (SBB Historic).
