Swiss Express, Switzerland.
Swiss Express is a part of the rail network of the Swiss Federal Railways. It is almost totally electrified. The company aim to maintain and build on this, and continue to work on the ecological efficiency and performance in the central areas, and particularly on noise abatement, energy efficiency and air pollution. This is the livery that was applied to 8 locomotives of the Re 4/4 II class in the early 1970's, for the prestigious "SwissExpress" trains - with the coaches in the same livery - that ran on Switzerland's busiest line: St. Gallen - Zürich - Bern - Lausanne - Genève. Today, only two machines remain in this livery: nos. 11108 and 11109.
