Some information about original and model:

After WW II. the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) were in need of new electric locomotives to replace older steam locomotives. Among others this lead to the development of the new Rh 1041 locomotive. The Rh 1041 could reach a top speed of 90 km/h (although it was only licensed for 80 km/h), weighed 83 tons and was equipped with the Bo'Bo' wheel arrangement. Between 1951 and 1953 25 of these locomotives were stationed in Attnang-Puchheim, Selzthal and Bischofshofen. The main tasks of the 15,32 m long electric locomotive were regional and freight traffic. In the locomotive’s last operational years it was also used for shunting service. The machines with their electrical components from AEG, BBC, ELIN and SSW were known for their reliability. By the end of 2003 all vehicles of the Rh 1041 series were taken out of service due to modernisation measures by the ÖBB. Some of the locomotives can be exhibited in museums, including the model 1041.15, which was al-most fully converted back in is original state.
