Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The FS E.625 and E.626 are two classes of Italian electric locomotives produced for the Ferrovie dello Stato. They were introduced in the course of the 1920s and remained in service until the 1990s. The E.626 was the first locomotive fed by 3,000 V DC lines in Italy. The E.626 class is the result of a requirement issued in 1926 by the Ferrovie dello Stato for a new locomotive to be used under the new 3,000 V DC line being built between Foggia and Benevento. The design was carried out by the team of Giuseppe Bianchi, the "founder" of modern Italian railroads, at the FS Traction and Material Service in Florence. The requirement specified the locomotive should have 6 traction axles, to improve adhesion in steep lines.show more
