I've noticed the Chur ones, anyone know what is special about Chur
that it still needs Ee3/3?
11 kV of RhB is special in Chur. Modern 15 kV locomotives are not allowed to work under 11 kV unless they are allowed to do so. If I'm not mistaken, some Vectrons got such a modification.

Old Re 4/4" or Ee 3/3 simply work a bit slower, but they work.

The Zürich locos only see occasional use when a 923 is not available but still occasionally get swapped with Chur.  16447 was recently transferred from SBB-P Bellinzona to Infra and 16406 could follow as there is now no work for Ee 3/3 in Bellinzona. 16451 only sees sporadic use in Basel
