Swiss locomotives maker Stadler Rail has completed restoration work on RAe TEE II 1035 multiple-unit train, as part of SBB Historic’s order in 2013.

The maintenance work on the train involved replacement of electric wheel-slip protection and anti-slide device and restoration of the multi-system compliance of the drive. Fitting work was carried out by Stadler at the SBB Historic depot in Olten, Switzerland.

Improvements will enable the RAe TEE II 1035 multiple-unit train to run on all four power systems on the major European railways.

Stadler has also successfully completed testing on the train to check its compatibility on its four-system track in Bussnang, Switzerland.

"Improvements will enable the RAe TEE II 1035 multiple-unit train to run on all four power systems on the major European railways."

The RAe TEE II four-current trains were initially commissioned in 1961, and were designed and developed to set new European standards in terms of comfort and technology.

These trains operated across Milan, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam without long delays at the borders and were operational in daily international use up to 15 years ago.

SBB Historic had taken over and restored the existing RAe TEE II 1053 composition to its original condition.

The contract from SBB Historic also includes the long-term service and maintenance contracts for various fleets in Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, Algeria, Austria, Norway and Italy, Poland, Sweden and the Netherlands.
