Mainline History: In the 1970s the project "Bahn 2000" was launched, a new expansion programme for the Swiss Railways, the SBB. In 1985 an order was issued to develop a new series of locomotives which became known as the Re 4/4 VI. In 1987 12 units were ordered, followed by a further 87 units in 1989 and another 20 units in 1992. The first locomotive, which according to the new nomenclature of the SBB is referred to as series 460, was taken into service in 1992. These locomotives have 4 axles and 4 motors and are manufactured by the companies ABB and SLM. Each engine has a maximum power output of 1560 kW. The latest technologies were used in the construction and manufacture of these locomotives. The driver's cab, for example, was not made of metal but of fibreglass-reinforced plastic (GRP). The entire front was then glued onto the rest of the locomotive. (Source: booklet with the locomotive). In 1994 advertising appeared on a Re460 for the first time (Agfa film). This was an additional source of income and proved to be a success, after which more and more Re460 locomotives were commissioned together with adverts.

The Model 34632 is one of the many models that Märklin brought out of the Series Re 460. This is a model with advertising of the SBB Cargo itself with the company number 460 074-8 as it was deployed in the period from 19-09-1997 up until 18-10-2004.
