I think that the BLS did testing with a 103 on the Loetschberg line. AFAIR it was not a lease, it was a loan or a joint operation with DB.
The Adtranz 128 (12X) was also frequently seen in Switzerland.
All these testings can't be compared to the lease of E40 and 194, which were put into daily operation and pulled regular trains. The E40 helped until enough RBe 4/4 and Re 4/4 II were delivered. The 194 helped out some 20 years later and were used in heavy freight traffic, especially Weiacher Kies trains and the like.

EA 8/1961 2 E40 149-150 + 2 E91 on lease
11.08.1961 +E40 138-139 until 03.09.1961

05.07.1962 4 E40
31.07.1962 +2 E40
01.10.1962 -2 E40
31.10.1962 -4 E40

04.02.1963 5 E40 Depot Basel until 03.03.1963
18.04.1963 6 E40 138, 139, 150, 152, 177, 191 until 19.05.1963
17.06.1963 4 E40 Depot Basel
08.07.1963 4 E40 Depot Zürich
20.08.1963 4 E40 Depot Bern until 24.11.1963

From EA 8/1963:
In Zürich stehen 2 Lok in Reserve, die beiden andern führen Personen- und Güterzüge auf den Linien Zürich—Zug, —Schaffhausen, —Eschlikon, —Ragaz und —Wettingen. Dieser Einsatz ergibt die in unseren Kreisen
so beliebten internationalen Kombinationen: «Transalpin» Zürich—Basel täglich OeBB-Triebwagen mit DB E 40-Vorspann; 18. 6. Zug 5779 Wettingen—Zürich mit Zuglok C 5/6 2954 und Vorspann E 40; Züge mit E 40-Doppeltraktion; Güterzüge ab Basel mit Be 4/6-Lok und E40-
Vorspann; 8—10.7. Züge 3051/3074 Zürich—Schaffhausen—Zürich mit E 40-Vorspann instruktionshalher; 5. 7. Zug 822 Schaffhausen—Zürich
mit Zuglok E 40 und Schlußlok E 40 in Rückleitung kreuzte in Niederglatt Zug 3043 mit Vorspann E 40.

Pantographs for E40 had been taken from Ae 3/6 10674, Ae 4/7 10910, 10918, 11005. E40 ran without Signum and needed thus two drivers.

Numbers seen: E40 017—19, 139, 149—51, 177, 191, 225, 254—55. 264.
Locomotives returned to Offenbrung every 14 days for maintenance. During this time they were replaced with other locomotives.
