Train set Construction Series BDe 4/4.
The train sets of the BDe 4/4 construction series are electric trains of the Schweizerischen Bundesbahnen (SBB), as deployed between 1952 - 1997. A total of 31 sets of these train sets were built, which were initially classified as CFe 4/4, but in 1963 were re-classified as Series BDe 4/4.

Development and deployment:
After the Second World War, the Swiss SBB was in dire need of electric train sets for deployment on the secondary routes. In 1949, 13 sets of the CFe 4/4 Series (known as the BDe 4/4 Series as from 1963) were ordered. In 1952 a second order for 18 sets of these train sets followed, bringing the total number to 31 sets.

The bogies are derived from the locomotives of the Series Re 4/4 I and have a welded frame with leaf springs. Each bogie has 2 traction motors (4 in total) that were supplied by MFO. Each rotary set has a brake cylinder connected to a brake rod that operates the 8 brake pads on either side of each wheel. The train sets of the BDe 4/4 Series can accommodate 40 seated passengers, of which 16 are smoking seats and 24 non-smoking. The bench seats are set opposite each other and are upholstered in faux-leather.

These train sets were often deployed in combination with Leichtstahl carriages. The BDe 4/4 train sets were stationed in the depots at Lausanne, Olten and Winterthur. Three train sets were stationed at the Bellinzona depot. In 1995-1996, these train sets were decommissioned.
