Prototype History:
The Re 460 (popularly known as the Lok 2000) is a 6,100 kW (8,180 hp) four-axle electric locomotive of the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB-CFF-FFS). Upon their entry into service in the early 1990s, they replaced the Ae 3/6I, Ae 4/7 and Re 4/4I series units, and displaced many of the Re 4/4II series into lesser duties.
A total of 121 Re 460 have been built between 1991 and 1996.
The series was introduced as part of the Rail 2000 project, a massive project to modernise and improve capacity on Switzerland's railways. While originally designed as a multipurpose locomotive, they are now used for passenger services only, often in conjunction with the IC 2000 double decker trains (often used to pull InterCity and InterRegio trains in German and French language areas). Their freight role has been assumed by Re 482s. They are maintained at Yverdon..

The Re 460 are regularly used as billboards for advertising campaigns of all sorts.
