Bahnonline.ch brings more background information: Locomotive no. 031 is the seventh locomotive of its type that went through the full modernization program of the SBB 460 series (except for installing the new IGBT convertors as these are still in the test phase).
This means SBB has put six locomotives into service that have been modernized: 460 016, 027, 031, 084, 108 and 118. Unit 460 010 is the seventh loco that has been modernized, and the only one with new IGBTs. As these are not fully approved yet, the machine has no REV date yet.
