Cisalpino - Re 484 018-7 electric locomotive

Overview

This miniature model accurately represents the Electric Locomotive Re 484 018 operated by Cisalpino, a joint venture between Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) and Trenitalia. Designed for accuracy and realism, the model provides enthusiasts and collectors with a detailed replica of this significant locomotive used in trans-Alpine European rail traffic.

Technical specifications

Detailing: The model features finely detailed craftsmanship with numerous separately attached plug-in parts that mimic the real locomotive’s intricate design.
Chassis Features: It includes a snow plough on the chassis to represent its capability to operate in winter conditions, typical of the Alpine routes.
Pantographs: Equipped with four pantographs, this model can theoretically operate across the different electrical systems used in Italy and Switzerland.
Lighting: It has switchable high beam lights and individually controllable headlights or tail lights in digital mode, enhancing its operational realism in model railroading.

Historical context

In August 2005, Cisalpino leased several Class 484 locomotives to streamline their EuroCity services between Berne, Geneva, and Milan. The deployment of these locomotives eliminated the need for changes at national borders, significantly reducing travel times and improving the efficiency of international rail services. The locomotives were notably painted in a distinctive silver, red, and light blue livery, marking their first use in passenger train operations. The extended use of these locomotives until the end of 2007 was necessitated by delays in the delivery of new rolling stock, thereby extending their operational life and historical significance in European rail history.
