History historic rail vehicle

As the secondary lines permitted higher axle loads thanks to the renewed and reinforced track superstructure, the Ce 4/6 308 - 317 were converted into Ce 4/4 in the years 1954 - 1956. The front ends and running axles were removed. This made it possible to increase the adhesive weight and tractive power despite the lower total weight.

The Ce 4/4 312 has been part of BLS AG's fleet of historic vehicles with a newly sprayed body since 2013 and has been owned by the BLS Foundation since 2023. It is not operational and can be viewed as a museum piece in the BLS Foundation's historical depot in Burgdorf as part of a guided tour.
