  • Prototype information

    Eight class E 18 express locomotives were built in Austria starting in 1938 as road numbers E 18 201 to E 18 208. After World War II the Austrian Federal Railways (BBÖ) added two original locomotives from the German State Railroad to this group. One of the two was used for spare parts. The other unit was designated as road number E 18 42 and was the fastest locomotive in Austria for many years. In 1952, this locomotive was used for publicity purposes in an attractive two-color paint scheme along with newly overhauled prewar passenger cars to present the resumption of long distance passenger service - now under electric catenary operation. After the founding of the ÖBB (postwar Austrian Federal Railways) further expansion went forward modestly with uniformly green cars and locomotives. These locomotives then became the class 1018; only the fast E 18 42 became the 1118.01. It was updated in 1967 and was run in a Jaffa orange paint scheme until 1985.
