To meet the need for rapid delivery of new locomotives for the freight transport on the "Tauernbahn", the ÖBB branched off four locomotives from the series production of the Swedish type Rc 2. The locomotives excelled with thyristor technology and quickly proved perfect for freight transportation. Until 1974 ten locomotives were delivered to the ÖBB. Hardly any other series of the ÖBB had such a wide variety of lettering variants in its service life.
