Swiss Federal Railways SBB Cargo ordered 12 Eurosprinter type two-system locomotives from Siemens in December 2003. These Re 474s are being used in cross-border freight traffic between Switzerland and Italy. The High-Performance Locomotive Re 474 has a Swiss and Italian homologation. For the operator, this means an optimization of operations and increased economic efficiency in cross-border service.
