    SBB Re 482 for Many Uses - What the class 185 is to the German Railroad, Inc., runs on the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB Cargo) as the class 482, which is mostly identical to the class 185. However, this locomotive is used for more than just freight service. It also substitutes for the Re 460, which is used in passenger service. This multi-system locomotive type is a further development of the Eurosprinter family, which preceded it, and has become a common sight in many European countries. In addition to different power outputs, the units delivered to the different railroads have externally recognizable differences. The Re 482 units running in Switzerland have four pantographs on the roof in order to adhere to the narrower SBB clearance gauge and the wider zig-zag pattern of the catenary in other European countries. You can thus see the SBB's Re 482 far beyond the borders of Switzerland. In addition, SBB Cargo is also getting involved in the growing, European lease locomotive business.
