SBB/CFF E 4/4 Series 8800
As early as 1914, the 4/4 coupled heavy shunting locomotive was used at the larger stations and assigned to the respective depots. The locomotives were actually intended for shunting purposes, but sometimes, exceptionally, used for passenger traffic (load for passenger traffic 240 tons; for freight traffic 400 tons). The machines were considered to be very robust and were therefore used for a long time.
