RhB Gem 2/4 211 | Orange

Class Ge 2/4 were pioneer electric locomotives intended for light passenger and freight services. A total of seven units, numbered 201 - 207 and liveried in dark green, were built in 1912-13 by Brown Boveri & Cie. of Baden and the Swiss Locomotive Works (SLM) at Winterthur.

No. 205 was severely damaged in an accident in 1920. Its body was rebuilt with doors at each end. It was likely the first to receive the new brown livery, which became standard only a few years later. Withdrawn from service in 1974, it spent about three decades on display at Winterthur and has since returned to the RhB. It is preserved and stabled at Samedan Depot.

Nos. 203 (221) and 204 (222) received a new geared motor and an electrical brake in 1945 and 1946 respectively. The body was altered only slightly with vents replacing a window, and resistor banks on the roof taking the place of one of the pantographs. No. 221 was withdrawn and scrapped in 1998, while No. 222 is in active preservation.

No.s 201 (213), 202 (211) and No. 206 (212) were rebuilt for shunting duties during 1943 & 46. The entire drive train was renewed and the body altered to a steeple cab design. This did away with the driver having to commute between cabs when changing direction. Steps and platforms for shunting personnel were added at each end.

No. 211 also received accumulator batteries to allow it to shunt between AC and DC systems at Chur. It was reclassified Gea 2/4. Its designation changed to Gem 2/4 in 1967, when a diesel generator replaced the batteries. The livery of 211 - 213 was changed over time to several shades of brown with simple RhB chromed relief letters to Orange with white painted lettering in 1984. No.s 211 and 213 have both been scrapped, and No. 212 was withdrawn from service in 2006. Restored to its 1946 appearance, it is now on static display at Chemin de fer du Kaeserberg near Fribourg.

No. 207 is the only example to survive in largely original condition. It was withdrawn from service in 1974 and has been on static display at the Verkehrshaus der Schweiz (Swiss Transport Museum) at Lucerne since 1982.

This model represents the appearance of No. 211 followig the 1967 rebuild, in Orange livery.

Bevel gear and connecting rod mechanism powered by an M motor. A channel for routing wires from a track power collector is incorporated in the chassis. If battery power is desired, a separate battery wagon will be necessary, as there is no space on-board.
