Model: HO gauge DC. Electric locomotive 460 019 "175 Years of Swiss Railways" of the Swiss Federal Railways. With elaborate printing in the anniversary design. Both side walls with different design. With extra attached wipers. Switchable front/tail light with DIP switch.

Prototype: SBB celebrates 175 years of railways in Switzerland. On August 9, 1847, timetabled operations for passenger services began between Zurich and Baden on the Spanish Brötli Bahn. This marked the beginning of the development of the Swiss railway network. This historic moment in Swiss railway history is being celebrated with a befitting anniversary program. The Public Transport Association, SBB, Postbus and the Alliance Swiss Pass have designed a variety of public events in five regions for the celebrations as well as the official ceremony on August 9, 2022.

Another highlight that draws attention to the anniversary year is the Re 460 series locomotive designed by Roco in cooperation with the SBB and the artist Gudrun Geiblinger. The anniversary locomotive was provided with two different side designs. On the one hand, the world-famous "Spanish Brötli Bahn" is reminiscent of the first railway in Switzerland and the historic Zurich main station exudes the charm of the early railway era. The other side of the locomotive has arrived in the modern age: you can see the Swiss high-speed train ICN leaving the Gotthard base tunnel, a masterpiece of the Swiss railway industry.
Variations of this product:
Founded in 1960 as a manufacturer of plastic products (sand buckets, miniature military vehicles), the company is now one of the world's leading providers of model railways as an innovation leader. The first locomotives were produced in 1976. The models were characterized by precision and authenticity right from the start and established the company's reputation for quality early on. In addition, Roco has always thought further about model railways and stimulated the industry with innovations. Over the decades, the wagons that are not shortened in length, the more prototypical tracks with less high rail profiles or the "snag-free" close couplings should be mentioned. A milestone for the future is the cutting-edge Z21 control system, which for the first time combines the virtual and real game worlds and thus raises the play value of model railways to a completely new level. Company headquarters are in Bergheim/Salzburg. Roco has a global presence and, via Modelleisenbahn München GmbH, is a company of Modelleisenbahn Holding GmbH, which also includes the German quality manufacturer Fleischmann. Roco relies on valuable and manual work. This is the only way to create the detailed, highly reliable and functional miniatures. Comprehensive quality management with internal and external quality assurance measures ensures that Roco locomotive and wagon owners receive the best quality and can enjoy their models for a long time. Here, too, Roco is a pioneer. The Roco factory in Arad was the first factory in the model railway industry to be certified according to ISO 9001 by the German DQS GmbH.
