At present, the 18 Re 465 engines delivered to BLS by SLM and ABB from 1994 onwards are the strongest four-axle universal engines produced in a series worldwide.
They are equipped with three-phase current propulsion technology and are outwardly identical with the SBB’s Intercity express train engines of the Re 460 series. The BLS engines are approved for 230 km/h and, in contrast to their SBB counterparts, are equipped with an individual axle drive, which supplies an output of 7000kW on the rails. The multiple-unit control is very versatile and allows for double heading with other BLS engines.
At present, the BLS Re 465 is used for the RE Regional express trains from Berne to Lucerne and from Berne to Neuchâtel. These engines also pull the heavy freight trains from Basel-Lörrach through the Lötschberg Tunnel and the Simplon to Domodossola.
