This section was originally about the six electrics that SBB cargo sold to MRCE-Dispolok on 01.08.2005. At that moment SBB cargo was already renting out most of them to other oprators, and lease company MRCE-Dispolok continued to do so. The machines, which are only homologated for Germany, are interesting for German open access operators that want to start of with electric traction for the first time, or that are specialized in domestic services only.
All six machines initially kept their SBB Cargo livery and service numbers; 481 001-006. On some machines however the small SBB Cargo inscriptions were partially removed.
Since 2005 MRCE-Dispolok has again sold several machines from this batch. The Pressnitztalbahn has acquired two machines (481 001 and 003), the Niag another one (481 004). As it is expected that these six machines face a dynamic future, with many different employees and owners, it is decided to keep them together in this section, and not put up a new section for every new owner. By doing this one can keep up more easily with all the changes.
