re SBB Cargo locos

Martin Baumann

The 421s with one exception have never had a full (R3) overhaul so are in not as great a conditon as some of the older locos


I did not know that. Thanks for the information
Was this a result of the division of the fleet between SBB and SBB Cargo?

Yes, Cargo, certainly in recent years, have been unwiling to pay for R3 overhauls for any locos except Re 6/6

The only loco of the group to get an R3 was 11375 (as it still was at the time) released 22.05.2002
