The routes/lines of the Swiss Seetalbahn at Wildegg and Beromünster were electrified between 1910 and 1930 with 5.5 kV/25 Hz, a relic from the era of the private railway With the nationalization in 1922, the SBB elected at the same time to standardise the current and also to purchase a new locomotive Thus, in 1926, 3 locomotives De 6/6 were delivered prepared for use with the standard current at 15 kV/16 2/3 Hz The "Seetal-crocodile" rightly bears its name: the undercarriage construction truly matches the famous SBB-locomotive Two drive-wheel groupings (here without leader wheels) bear a three piece upper construction Because the Seetal-locomotives only needed to be lighter and more manoeuvrable, the appropriate mechanical components of the smaller Ee 3/3 that was built in parallel were used Each wheel-set is driven by a motor via a blind shaft and slanted driveshafts, the total power is 850 kW, that allows a maximum speed of 50km/h Characteristic are the large air inlets on the sides of the locomotives for cooling the transformers, and the single pantograph The three small crocodiles were in service at the SBB until 1983, since the 1950s mainly used as shunting locomotives The only preserved locomotive, number 15301, belongs to the Oensingen-Balsthal-Bahn and is awaiting the finance for its restoration
