Historical context

The "Habersack", a class Eb 3/5 tank locomotive, was built by SLM between 1911 and 1916, with a total of 34 units produced. These locomotives, delivering nearly 1,000 horsepower (735 kilowatts) and capable of speeds up to 75 km/h (47 mph), were originally designed for passenger services. Their robust design and supplemental braking system later made them well-suited for freight operations. Following their prominent use in the mid-20th century, the comprehensive electrification of the Swiss rail network reduced their operational necessity. By 1965, these locomotives were either stored or sold off as the era of steam in Swiss rail service waned.
