Everything began with the Spanish Brötli – a delicious pastry from the Swiss resort town of Baden. Naturally, this is not the whole truth, but on August 9, 1847, the first railroad built in Switzerland from Zürich to Baden started scheduled operations. Now the servants of high Zürich society could pick up this famous pastry rolling out early in the morning comfortably by train and bring it promptly to the Sunday breakfast table, without an hour's trip to Baden and back. For that reason, this route soon acquired the name Spanisch-Brötli-Bahn (Spanish Brötli Railroad). In succeeding years a rail construction boom broke out in Switzerland too, which reached a route length of 2,457 kilometers / 1,536 miles within 35 years. Finally, between 1902 and 1909, the five large railroad companies were nationalized into the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). The result was the weaving of an increasingly dense rail network across Switzerland, which is still extensively used today. The Swiss still show an marked preference for using the railroad, because on average they travel about 1,800 kilometers / 1,125 miles per year by train.On this notable anniversary, the SBB is presenting an electric locomotive with an appropriately striking special design. Road number Re 420 251 (former Re 4/4 II 11251) was selected for this purpose. For decades, this general-purpose class has been an essential support of locomotive-hauled SBB service. At 276 units built between 1964 and 1985, it is also the class built in the highest quantity for the Swiss Railways.
