BLS Cargo Re 486  
in short
order details
On 05.09.2007, Bombardier was awarded by BLS Cargo with an order for ten Traxx F140 multisystem locomotives. An option for another 10 locomotives was included. The machines are built for nonstop, langhaul services over the Alps, as they will be certified for Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy. Next to the standard train detection systems for these countries, the units are also equipped with ERTMS (Europe) and SCMT (Italy).

On 05.09.2008, the first BLS Traxx left the Kassel assembly plant. It was transported to Bombardier's test site in Hennigsdorf, near Berlin. The machine, designated Re 486 501, was decorated with the latest BLS promotional vynils, similar to those applied on BLS Cargo's Re 485 003. The slogan is different on both sides, as one is in German, the other in Italian.
