Length over buffer 125 mm. large company The takeover of the Gotthard Railway by the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) in 1909 brought about drastic changes. The most important innovation was the electrification of the Gotthard Railway, which is now pursued with the highest priority, with the electric operation on the actual ramps from Erstfeld to Biasca and the Gotthard Tunnel on 12 December Was recorded in 1920. Finally, from May 28, 1922 onwards, the route could be traveled continuously from Lucerne to Chiasso with electric locomotives. But for this the SBB needed a whole lot of new locomotives - and with the so-called "crocodile" "the" Gotthard locomotive for freight trains was born. Between 1919 and 1922 at first 33 copies were delivered as Ce 6/8 II 14251-14283. Two drive racks, each with three drive axles and one wheelset, were connected by a close coupler. Between the two engine racks a short Lokkasten enthroned and so an excellent curve mobility was guaranteed. In 1926-27, SBB's steadily increasing freight services led to the procurement of another 18 crocodiles as Ce 6/8 III 14301-14318. They had a higher output of 1,809 instead of 1,647 kW. Their drive with two traction motors per engine frame had been changed a bit to its predecessors and now took place via the so-called Winterthurer diagonal drive with the help of a countershaft blind shaft. Together with their older sisters they dominated in the following decades, the heavy freight train service on the Gotthard. In the mid-1950s, their maximum speed could be increased from 65 to 75 km / h and so they were logically redrawn in Be 6/8 III 13301-13318. An end to their operations at the Gotthard came only with the appearance of the Ae 6/6 in the late 1950s. All machines were then first from the depot Erstfeld to the depot Basel and from there to further deployment locations. The "crocodiles" now made almost all of Switzerland unsafe for freight trains. At the end of her career, however, they were only allowed to pull light piece suits. The last Ce 6/8 III disappeared in April 1977 from the rails, but remained with the numbers 13302 (MEC Horgen) and 13305 (SBB Historic) two copies.
